    1950-D Half Dollar, MS66+ Full Bell Lines
    Vibrant Luster, Attractive Toning

    1950-D 50C MS66+ Full Bell Lines PCGS. This issue is readily available with Full Bell Lines in lower Mint State grades, but its availability with such dramatically drops at the Premium Gem grade level; PCGS has certified 74 examples in MS66, but only seven have been awarded a Plus designation, and none are finer (9/14). This piece is tied numerically with the example in the highest-rated Registry Set, and showcases intermingled cherry-red, forest-green, and olive-gold toning over the obverse, while the reverse is primarily untoned, save for a thin ring of rainbow color seen around the periphery. The strike is sharp, and the preservation is in keeping with the numeric grade.(Registry values: N2998)

    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.
