Description

Sparkling White Superb Gem 1929-S Walking Liberty Half

1929-S 50C MS67 NGC. An eye-popping coin which earned this stellar grade for the splendid surfaces and radiant luster. Totally white in color and virtually as fresh as the day it was coined. The surfaces are a delight to study, for a loupe reveals no significant fault, just a scattered tick or two from perfection. Even the strike is sharper than most, with Liberty's thumb outlined over her hip. Identifiable by two tiny nicks in the right obverse field above G of GOD. A significant opportunity for the specialist of this series.
As 1929 unfolded, the world economy fell apart. Interest rates climbed and the days of easy credit were over for the American people. Jobs were starting to become scarce, but most workers were still employed as 1929 drew to a close. No one knew how bad things were about to become for the next several years. It is obvious that this coin was set aside and somehow survived the vicissitudes that swept the worlds economies during these years. No doubt most coin collections were spent for food money as workers struggled to stay employed as the 1930s churned on. This is one of the finest survivors from the entire issue, and a classic piece of American history that has been carefully preserved to this day. Population: 4 in 67, 0 finer (8/05).(#6590) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24RD, PCGS# 6590)

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.
