1901-S Half Dollar, MS65
1901-S 50C MS65 NGC. The Complete Guide to Certified
Barber Coinage ranks this tricky issue third in Mint State
rarity, surpassed only by the 1904-S and 1896-O emissions. NGC has
certified only three Gems of this date with one piece finer; PCGS
has certified five pieces in MS65 with five finer (6/13).
Only One Finer at NGC
This example offers silver surfaces lightly tinged with gold throughout, and even under a loupe there are no singularly distracting abrasions. For an S-mint coin, however, the strike is curiously soft on the right shield corner and the nearby areas. Some interesting die cracks appear on both sides, the sign of die fatigue. Census: 3 in 65, 1 finer (6/13).
Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2008), lot 674, which brought $25,300.

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.
