    1938-D Half Dollar, MS67+
    Rich Peripheral Toning

    1938-D 50C MS67+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The 1938-D half dollar had the lowest mintage of any issue during the 1930s and 1940s, and is considered a key to the late date series. Just 491,600 were coined, the lowest mintage after 1921. That total is less than half the second lowest mintage during the period when 1,001,200 Walking Liberty half dollars were coined at Denver in 1929.

    This Superb Gem is absolutely stunning, exhibiting delicate blue and light gold toning at the centers, deepening to rich gold, rose, and blue along the borders. The strike is sharp and the eye appeal is impressive. This piece is tied for the finest that PCGS has examined. Population: 60 in 67 (6 in 67+), 0 finer. CAC: 21 in 67, 0 finer (8/20).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 24RV, PCGS# 6605)

    Weight: 12.50 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    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.
