    Charming 1902 Barber Half, MS67
    Another Unimprovable Specimen

    1902 50C MS67 PCGS Secure. Ex: Duckor/Price. The obverse has a short die crack through the bust tip, ending in the field before reaching the date or star 13. Both sides of this Superb Gem have bold design definition, with amazing surfaces and color. Considerable bright silver on the obverse intermingles with emerald-green and faint gold. The reverse has less bright silver and more emerald-green. The underlying surfaces are essentially mark free, with frosty luster.
    The 1902 Barber half dollar, with more than 4.9 million coined, has the third-highest mintage of any issue in the series behind 1899 and 1908-O. Such a high mintage failed to provide today's collectors with an adequate supply of Gem or finer examples. In our own sales since 1993, we have offered a single MS67 NGC coin, along with five MS66 examples. Over the years, PCGS has certified 526 Barber half dollars in MS66 or finer. From that total, 187 coins represent just 11 issues, leaving 339 coins for the other 63 issues. Only five of the 526 Premium Gem or finer Barber half dollars are examples of this 1902 issue.
    In the Price catalog, David Akers wrote words that we are unable to improve: "This will be far from the highest priced Half Dollar in this set, but it certainly will be among the most difficult to duplicate once this coin is sold." Population (6/10): MS66 (4); MS66+ (0); MS67 (1).
    Ex: Dr. Thaine B. Price (David Akers, 5/1998), lot 154.

    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.

    The staff at Heritage are amazing to work with. My wife and I were given the "red carpet treatment" from the moment we walked in. We felt safe and secure the moment we arrived.
