    1960 Franklin Half, MS67 Full Bell Lines
    The Single Finest Certified

    1960 50C MS67 Full Bell Lines PCGS. CAC. A Registry collector's dream coin, this Superb Gem Full Bell Lines 1960 Franklin half dollar is the sole finest at PCGS, and it is a full grade point finer than the best FBL examples at NGC (6/16). This is the absolute finest example of the date that has ever been offered at auction -- look for the price record to be shattered when this beautiful coin crosses the auction block. The coin is very nearly flawless when viewed beneath a loupe, and radiant, frosty luster rolls effortlessly over each side. Most of the interiors display ice-blue toning, while the borders have deeper forest-green, crimson, gold, and russet coloration. Eye appeal is as superb as the preservation.(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 24TL, PCGS# 86678)

    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.
