Smooth 1923-S Walking Liberty Half in MS64

1923-S 50C MS64 PCGS. The '23-S is the only Walker of the 1922-1926 era. It seems likely, therefore, that most of the 2.1 million coins produced would have entered circulation and remained there for many years. Indeed, this issue is difficult to locate in circulated grades above the VF level. Mint State coins, of course, are scarce and always in demand, and PCGS has seen just 31 pieces that grade finer than MS64 (3/02). This is a satin finished example with a modest glow in the fields. Sprays of tan tinged iridescence are seen on both sides, but the outward appearance is one of radiant brilliance. With no evident distractions, this coin would probably grade even finer were the striking definition more full.
From the Marvin Elkin Collection (the Jon/Lor PCGS Registry Set). (NGC ID# 24R9, PCGS# 6586)

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.
