One of the Finest Known 1871-S Halves1871-S MS 65 NGC. A lovely, lightly toned gem. The mintmark is very weak, and were this not in a holder the casual observer might never know it to be a product of the San Francisco Mint. This is the highest graded example by NGC (6/98), PCGS has also seen only one MS 65 with none higher.

Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
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.
