    Outstanding 1910-S Half Dollar, MS67

    1910-S 50C MS67 PCGS. CAC. If PCGS had not certified a single MS68 example of this issue, we would state that the present coin from the Dale Friend Collection is probably the finest existing 1910-S half dollar. As it is, we cannot imagine that the single certified MS68 example has any finer aesthetic appeal than this sensational Superb Gem. Nearly 2 million 1910-S half dollars were originally minted in San Francisco, and quite a few Mint State pieces have survived. PCGS has certified 66 submissions in all grades, including 25 in Gem grades from MS65 to MS68, although at the top of that range, it is still a major condition rarity, as are virtually all Barber half dollars. The 1910-S is rarer than most of the later S-Mint Barber half dollars, although it is more plentiful than most of the earlier S-Mint issues.
    Dale Friend's Superb Gem example appears to be finer than the Pryor and Price coins, and perhaps similar to the Eliasberg coin in overall quality. It is highly lustrous with a brilliant central obverse design motif that is framed by pastel russet, lilac, and blue near the borders. The reverse is mostly brilliant with faint peripheral iridescence. All of the design elements are boldly detailed, except as usual, the top right of the shield and the adjacent wing, although even those details are sharper than often seen. Population: 3 in 67, 1 finer (10/08).

    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.
