1954-S Franklin Half, MS67
1954-S 50C MS67 PCGS. This issue has one of the lowest
mintages of the series with just under 5 million pieces produced.
Most examples are softly struck, without bell lines. Superb Gem
examples are extremely rare, with PCGS certifying just two pieces
at the MS67 level as well as a single MS67 with Full Bell Lines --
which garnered over $20,000 when it traded hands about 14 years
ago. This colorfully toned example is lustrous and well-struck for
the issue. The bell lines are not complete but display
better-than-average detail. Elsewhere, the coin is smooth and
lustrous with only a few scattered abrasions. Almost impossible to
find in this condition with none certified finer by either major

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.
