    1927-S Walking Liberty Half, MS66
    None Finer at PCGS

    1927-S 50C MS66 PCGS. CAC. The 1927-S was the first half dollar issued in four years with the exception of commemoratives. While most of the early half dollars were not needed for commerce, the expanding economy of the late 1920s necessitated the resumption of the denomination. Due to the sudden increase in demand, the vast majority of 1927-S halves were poorly struck and saw extensive circulation. Thus, while easily located in most grades, the 1927-S is scarce in high grades and truly rare in Premium Gem.

    Mottled lavender and rose-gold patina enhances the surfaces of the present coin. The strike is above-average with only a touch of weakness on the central devices. A couple of tiny handling marks are nearly imperceptible without magnification. Impressive satiny luster enhances the eye appeal. Population: 8 in 66, 0 finer. CAC: 4 in 66, 0 finer (6/16).
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2009), lot 2521; Los Angeles Signature (Heritage, 8/2009), lot 1694.

    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.
