1944 Walking Liberty Half, MS68
1944 50C MS68 PCGS. One would never consider the 1944 Walker
to be a rare issue. More than 28 million coins were struck, and the
average grade is MS63.8, indicating there are a great many
high-grade (MS64 and better) coins available. And yet there are
only two examples that have achieved the grade of MS68, this PCGS
coin and a single one certified by NGC.
Single Finest Certified at PCGS
Some coins need a magnifier to appreciate, but not this one. The surfaces are immediately attractive with the bright, satiny luster overlaid with subtle toning. Both obverse and reverse show iridescent pale rose and lilac with light russet on the right side of the obverse. The strike is complete, as one would expect, and there are no mentionable marks (again, as one would expect). Extraordinary eye appeal.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24SC, PCGS# 6621)

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.
