Bright 1901 Barber Half, PR681901 50C PR68 NGC. The proof production of 1901-dated half dollars was a generous 813 coins, but most of them have various minor flaws or contact marks, averaging around the Select proof (PR63) level. At the lofty level of PR68 the issue is quite elusive, as fewer than 10 submissions -- not necessarily different coins -- have been seen.
This bright, untoned PR68 coin exhibits sharply impressed devices, except for a hint of the often-found softness at the upper right shield corner and eagle's wing. A loupe reveals the surfaces to be near pristine, as there are no blemishes that we can even identify as pedigree markers. Census: 6 in 68, 1 in 68 ★ finer (3/11).

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.
