    Single Highest Graded 1949 Franklin Half, MS67 NGC

    1949 50C MS67 NGC. Lush golden-brown, ocean-blue, and cream-gray colors endow this highly lustrous Superb Gem. The 1949 is a better date, scarce across all Mint State grades. It is rare in MS66, and only one example from either major service has achieved the MS67 grade, this older holder piece. In addition, the strike is very sharp, and although not designated as Full Bell Lines, the lower set of lines are unbroken and the upper lines have weakness only near the left border of the bell crack. Population: 1 in 67, none finer (1/05).
    From The Stevenson Collection.(#6653) (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24ST, PCGS# 6653)

    Weight: 12.50 grams

    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.
