Well Preserved Gem 1919-S Half Dollar, MS65 PCGS1919-S 50C MS65 PCGS. Apparently because the mintage of the 1919-S Half was the largest of the three issues of that year, fewer were saved at the time of issue. As a result, high grade (XF and better) examples are difficult to find and Mint State pieces are very elusive. Strike is an especially important factor on '19-S Halves. This piece is well defined with slight softness on the head and hand details, but relatively strong skirt lines and left side definition of the eagle's leg. The surfaces overall are very bright with frosted mint luster that is virtually unblemished. A high-end MS65 that is very close to an even finer grade. Housed in an early PCGS holder. Population: 33 in 65, 11 finer (2/04).

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.
