    1920-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar, MS65
    Underrated Issue in High Grade

    1920-D 50C MS65 PCGS. The 1920-D Walking Liberty half dollar is more elusive than its mintage of 1.5 million pieces would suggest, and the issue is an underrated "sleeper" outside of series specialists. Although the 1920-D has a reputation as a strike rarity, most examples seen exhibit at least some emerging detail on the central obverse (admittedly, the strike on Liberty's head is usually weak). The real objection to most 1920-D Walkers is their subdued luster characteristics, which can vary widely.

    Fortunately, this delightful Gem offers unusually vibrant mint luster on both sides, with well-preserved surfaces that show a few subtle hints of golden-tan toning. The strike is typical for the issue, with some separation evident between Liberty's thumb and fingers on the wreath hand, but soft definition on the head. The 1920-D is very scarce in MS65 condition, and finer coins are condition rarities. Population: 47 in 65, 7 finer (4/17).(Registry values: N4719)

    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.
