Description

Colorful PR68 1912 Half

1912 50C PR68 NGC. Rich, even outlandish patina is the rule on this exquisitely preserved late-date proof Barber half. Lemon-yellow and light blue-green hues cover the majority of each side, but deeper ultramarine, cerulean, and violet-rose colors make their mark as well. The strike is exquisite, and the reverse even offers a touch of contrast. Eye appeal is flat-out amazing. At 700 pieces struck, the 1912 proof Barber half dollar had the best mintage for the series since 1905, but production would not rise so high again before the design was done. Census: 3 in 68, 0 finer (11/10).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24PG, PCGS# 6559)

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.
