    Marvelous 1900-S Barber Half, MS67+
    The Only PCGS Superb Gem

    1900-S 50C MS67+ PCGS Secure. CAC. Ex: Duckor/Price. A prominent obverse die crack meanders from star 1 to the lower part of the bust, eventually reaching star 13. Other faint cracks include those on the cap. The reverse has several peripheral die cracks. The mintmark is slightly right of center and close to the tail feathers.
    This Superb Gem is boldly detailed, with exquisite surfaces and incredible eye appeal. Both sides are essentially brilliant, with subtle champagne toning. Full frosty mint luster is evident, with only a few minuscule surface marks. A few faint roller lines remain from the original planchet preparation before the coin was struck.
    In the Price catalog, David Akers wrote about the rarity and condition of this coin, and his comments are equally applicable for the Duckor Collection: "There are so many great Barber Half Dollars in this collection, more Gem mint state pieces than have ever been offered from one collection in auction history, that it is difficult to single out any one or even a few individual coins that are more important or noteworthy than the others. However, even in the company of all the other magnificent Barber Half Dollars in the [Duckor] Collection, this 1900-S stands out as one of the most significant and desirable due to its rarity, quality, and superb eye appeal." Population (6/10): MS66 (3); MS66+ (0); MS67 (0); MS67+ (1).
    Ex: Dr. Thaine B. Price (David Akers, 5/1998), lot 150.

    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.
