    Enchanting Superb Gem 1882 Half Dollar

    1882 50C MS67 NGC. The Bland-Allison Act of 1878 channeled the vast majority of the Mint's purchased silver to non-circulating Morgan dollars, and the minor silver denominations were pushed to the back burner. Through the entirety of the 1880s, the half dollar was a Philadelphia-only denomination which never saw more than 12,001 business strikes produced; for the 1882, of which the present Superb Gem is a representative, there were only 4,400 coins made for circulation. Clearly this piece never went into commerce, as the undisturbed, diffusely reflective field luster suggests. Pale gold-to-gray color over the centers yields to orange and then cerulean at the rims. Census: 6 in 67, 1 finer (11/10).(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 24KV, PCGS# 6364)

    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.
