Satiny MS66 1892-O Barber Half
1892-O 50C MS66 NGC. Only 390,000 1892-O Barber halves were
made, the lowest of any branch mint issue and fourth-lowest in the
series, behind the three well-known low-mintage Philadelphia issues
of 1913-15. As such, it is a conditional rarity, and the present
MS66 piece is about as nice as most collectors can ever hope to vie
for: There are precisely three pieces numerically finer between NGC
and PCGS combined. Brilliant, satiny surfaces are well but not
fully struck, with an absence of distracting marks. This piece is
tied numerically (different service) with the Duckor coin that we
handled in our ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2010), lot 3173, which
brought $18,400. Census: 2 in 66, 1 finer (7/11).

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.
