    1904-S Barber Half Dollar, MS64
    Elusive Series Key

    1904-S 50C MS64 NGC. From a small business-strike mintage of 533,038 pieces, the 1904-S Barber half dollar is an underrated key and one of the most challenging issues of the series in high grade. Q. David Bowers notes the population data for this issue is inflated by resubmissions and crossovers and Mint State examples are much more elusive than those figures indicate. This impressive Choice example exhibits well-detailed design elements, with just a touch of the usual softness at the juncture of the shield and eagle's right (facing) wing. The well-preserved surfaces radiate satiny mint luster, with outstanding eye appeal. Census: 4 in 64, 4 finer (10/19).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 24MP, PCGS# 6500)

    Weight: 12.50 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    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.
