    Outstanding 1907 Barber Half, MS67+
    The Single Finest Example Known

    1907 50C MS67+ PCGS Secure. CAC. Ex: Duckor. Struck from perfect dies, this is an amazing, boldly defined Superb Gem with only slight weakness at the junction of the right wing and shield. Aside from insignificant marks near the bust tip, neither side has any mentionable abrasions. The surfaces have frosty mint luster with incredible toning. Light ivory and lavender at the centers changes gradually to orange-gold and iridescent toning with hints of pale green on the reverse.
    The 1907 is another condition rarity in the series, common enough in lower Mint State grades that nearly any interested collector can obtain one, but rare in MS65 and extremely rare any finer. PCGS has only certified three MS66 pieces, as has NGC. This single MS67+ is easily the finest existing 1907 Barber half dollar. This specimen from the Duckor Collection is destined for a top-quality Registry Set and will be admired by generations of collectors.
    The number one collection of Barber half dollars on the NGC Registry, belonging to "Yeoldeone" (who is actually not all that old), lacks 10 coins. Of those 10, four are Philadelphia Mint issues, including this 1907. The others are almost predictable: 1900, 1910, and 1913. It is often the case that a composite of want lists from a number of active collectors is the best indication of rarity. Population (6/10): MS66 (3); MS66+ (0); MS67 (0); MS67+ (1).
    Ex: Heritage (1/2004), lot 2088.

    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.
