Description

Scarce Gem Uncirculated 1927-S Half Dollar

1927-S 50C MS65 PCGS. One of the great strike rarities in the series, as well as being an absolute and condition rarity, the 1927-S is seldom seen in such lofty condition. The striking details are remarkably well defined on this coin with sharp skirt lines and near full definition in the hand area. Otherwise, just a bit soft in the head of Liberty and a tad weak on the eagle's breast feathers. Mostly brilliant, the fields show myriad die striations in the fields, which in turn impart a shimmering brightness not usually seen on early Walkers. The majority of the coin is brilliant with some spotty deep purple-russet color at the obverse margin. One small milling mark is seen to the left of IN GOD WE TRUST. Population: 40 in 65, only 6 finer (2/04).
From the Nicholas Collection. (#6587) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24RA, PCGS# 6587)

The Draped Bust Half Dollars of 1796-1797 by Jon Amato

The Draped Bust Half Dollars of 1796-1797 by Jon Amato is the culmination of more than 10 years of research into the Draped Bust Small Eagle half dollar series, one of the most coveted type coins in American numismatics and one about which remarkably little has been written.

This work will be the premier reference for 1796-1797 half dollars for years to come. Institutions having an extensive numismatic library or coin cabinet will find it a valuable complement to their holdings, and catalogers charged with writing up specimens for auction can now have an indispensable source of background and pedigree information. Likewise, coin dealers seeking to purchase one or more '96 or '97 half dollars for a client or for inventory, and collectors who own, have owned, or desire to own one will want this important reference work for their libraries.
