    Brief Arrows Design Type

    1874-CC 50C Arrows AU53 ANACS. Bright orange-gold luster remains evident on the lower-relief portions of Liberty, while gray-tan toning blankets the remaining portions of the obverse.

This boldly struck example is typically worn across the high points, for the grade, while only superficial surface nicks and hairlines are found on each side. A scarce issue from this brief two-year Arrows design type.

    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.
