1914 Barber Half, Gem Uncirculated
1914 50C MS65 NGC. The 1914 Barber half dollar (124,610
pieces coined) is one of the lowest mintage silver issues produced
in the 20th century. Gems are elusive, and the present example is
one of only 19 MS65 examples known to NGC and PCGS (4/13).
Uncommonly well struck for the type, the surfaces radiate intense
mint frost and display wisps of autumn-gold toning. The reverse is
well preserved, and the obverse has only faint grazes on the
portrait and right obverse field.

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.
