    Delectable 1894 Barber Half, MS67+
    Sole Finest at PCGS

    1894 50C MS67+ PCGS Secure. CAC. Ex: Duckor. The reverse has a faint crack through the tops of NITED to the border right of the last letter. Otherwise, both dies are perfect.
    This Superb Gem has frosty luster beneath incredible sky-blue, emerald-green, lemon-yellow, and golden-brown toning intermingled over both sides. The design is boldly rendered on each side from a virtually full strike, and the surfaces have no significant marks.
    In addition to the Hugon Collection that had a splendid MS66 PCGS specimen of the 1894 Barber half dollar, we proudly offered the present coin from another consignment in our January 2005 Platinum Night sale. A second MS67 PCGS coin appeared in our February 2006 auction, reappearing in three additional sales, and those two coins remain the only pieces that PCGS has graded at the MS67 level.
    We sold the MS66 PCGS duplicate from the Duckor Collection in our January 2009 offering of the Dale Friend Collection, the coin that the present specimen replaced. In addition to the Hugon and Friend specimens, few other Superb Gems have ever appeared on the market. Even coins grading MS66 are infrequently encountered. Our auction archives date back to January 1993 and include just 12 auction appearances in MS66 or MS67, representing only seven different coins. Population (6/10): MS66 (8); MS66+ (0); MS67 (1); MS67+ (1).
    Ex: Heritage (1/2005), lot 30222.
    From The Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor Barber Half Dollar Collection.

    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.
