1921 Walking Liberty Half Dollar, MS65
1921 50C MS65 PCGS. Ex: Sounder. This is a white coin with
just the slightest bit of golden toning to emphasize its pervasive
brilliant luster. It is reasonably well-struck for the issue, with
full skirt lines and good definition on Liberty's hand and thumb.
The surfaces show a few minor abrasions, in line with the grade,
along with evidence of a fairly strong die clash (as struck),
particularly on the reverse. The low-mintage 1921, of course, is
famous as one of the keys to the Walking Liberty half dollar
series, and is often one of the last coins to be acquired in order
to complete the set. This is one of the finest of the date
available, as evidenced by its PCGS population of 53 in 65, four

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.
