    1954-S Franklin Half Dollar, MS67
    Top-Grade Full Bell Lines Example

    1954-S 50C MS67 Full Bell Lines PCGS. The 1954-S is one of the lowest-mintage dates in the Franklin half dollar series with just under 5 million pieces. Most examples are softly struck without Full Bell Lines. When found, the typical Full Bell Lines example will grade MS64 or MS65, and only occasionally is a Premium Gem offered. The present coin is at the top of the Condition Census. PCGS has seen only three 1954-S half dollars in MS67 Full Bell Lines, and NGC none (6/17). This piece strays from its two top-grade counterparts in that it is nearly brilliant, with only a light champagne hue over each side. The preservation is exceptional and the strike is bold. Registry Set collectors should scramble to acquire this important condition rarity.(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 24TB, PCGS# 86669)

    Weight: 12.50 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    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.
