    1913-D Half Dollar, Splendid MS67
    The Eliasberg/Dale Friend/Eugene Gardner Coin

    1913-D 50C MS67 PCGS. In the Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection, and called "possibly the very finest known" in that offering. Although it is a relatively plentiful date, all 1913 half dollars are elusive, regardless of the Mint. Only a little over 1 million half dollars were coined at all three mints combined. Just 534,000 pieces were coined in Denver during the year.

    The Eliasberg-Dale Friend-Eugene Gardner specimen is boldly defined, with strong, almost complete detail right of the shield, and elsewhere. The surfaces are bright with silver luster and a full quota of mint frost. Splashes of golden-brown and a dappling of deep-umber grace the lower obverse and provide an attractive toning pattern to pedigree this exceptional 1913-D. Population: 1 in 67, 0 finer (11/17).

    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.
