    1940-S Walking Liberty Half, MS67+
    Attractive Rainbow Border Toning
    A Condition Census Rarity

    1940-S 50C MS67+ PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The 1940-S Walking Liberty half dollar is plentiful in most grades, but in MS67 it is a major condition rarity. In this grade it is significantly rarer than its Philadelphia counterpart, and no higher-grade pieces are known. The present coin is one of just three MS67s at PCGS with a Plus designation, placing it in the Condition Census for this issue. Moreover, it is beautifully toned around the periphery with lovely rainbow rings, while the interiors display warm golden color. Strike sharpness is outstanding, and neither side has bothersome abrasions. This is only the second Plus-graded example in this grade that we have seen. The importance to Registry collectors is unmatched. Population: 17 in 67 (3 in 67+), 0 finer (8/20).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 24S2, PCGS# 6610)

    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.
