    Resplendent 1911 Half Dollar, MS66
    None Finer at PCGS

    1911 50C MS66 PCGS Secure. CAC. Ex: Duckor/Price. The obverse has a faint die crack from the bust tip to star 13. Otherwise, both dies are perfect, with no defects. The strike is solid, although slightly shy of full. Both sides are highly lustrous, with satiny mint brilliance shining through incredible orange-gold, violet, and iridescent toning with evidence of silver-white. A few dark spots attest to the originality of this Premium Gem. A couple of field nicks near the chin are the only consequential marks on this gorgeous half dollar.
    The Price-Duckor specimen is the seventh different MS66 PCGS coin that we have handled, from the total population of just nine pieces. In addition to this coin, two others appear on the Set Registry, one at PCGS and the other at NGC. David Akers wrote in the Price catalog: "This is not a rare issue at all, but rather a fairly common one in all mint state grades, including Gem condition, something that cannot be said for very many Barber Half Dollar issues." Given its availability in MS66, the 1911 is a candidate for a high-grade type collection of U.S. coins. Of course the Barber half dollar specialist will also be interested in the Duckor specimen, tied for the finest at PCGS. Clearly the connoisseur's choice. Population (6/10): MS66 (9).
    Ex: Dr. Thaine B. Price (David Akers, 5/1998), lot 183.

    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.
