    1914-S Fifty Cent, MS66
    Tied for Finest, Ex: Duckor/Price

    1914-S 50C MS66 PCGS Secure. CAC. Ex: Duckor/Price. Sharply struck from perfect dies, this Premium Gem shows no signs of die cracks, clash marks, or other defects. The mintmark is minutely right of center and vertically centered between the eagle's tail and the D of DOLLAR. The strike is nearly full. Both sides are fully lustrous with silver-gray surfaces, reflective fields, and wisps of iridescence.

    The production of 992,000 pieces places the 1914-S among elite company with 20 other issues that had mintages less than 1 million coins. PCGS and NGC combined have seen 10 submissions in MS66 of the 1914-S half dollar with none finer.

    In the Price catalog, David Akers commented on the condition rarity, comparing the 1914-S to other issues: "This is a fairly scarce issue in all mint state grades; it is also a low mintage issue with less than 1,000,000 pieces struck. Rarity-wise, the 1914-S is about on a par, at least in Gem condition, with the 1913-S, and it is far more rare than the 1915-S which concludes the series." This incredible Premium Gem is destined for a high-end PCGS Registry Set. Population: 6 in 66, 0 finer (6/13).
    Ex: Dr. Thaine B. Price (David Akers, 5/1998), lot 193; Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor (Heritage, 8/2010), lot 3242, which brought $11,500; Pittsburgh Signature (Heritage, 10/2011), lot 3811, which realized $11,212.50.

    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.
