    1862 Seated Half, MS67
    Rich Copper-Pink Patina

    1862 50C MS67 NGC. CAC. This 1862 Seated half dollar was among the roughly quarter-million examples struck during the year, in which the horrid Civil War raged throughout the North, East, and South of the United States. Most gold and silver coins of any denomination were squirreled away like good nuts for a hard winter; few circulated. However this Superb Gem took its route to such incredible preservation, today it ranks as one of the two finest certified at NGC and PCGS combined. Both sides feature a complement of rich copper-pink patina over surfaces that are uniformly well-struck and free of all but the most minuscule contact marks. Signs of die clashing appear in the right (facing) obverse field under Liberty's elbow. A remarkable coin for the Seated half specialist. Census: 2 in 67, 0 finer (3/13).
    From The Jim O'Neal Collection.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 24J9, PCGS# 6307)

    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.
