1921-D Walking Liberty Half, MS63
1921-D 50C MS63 PCGS. The 1921-D Walker boasts the lowest
mintage in the series at 208,000 pieces and is the most elusive in
circulated condition. This key date maintains its scarcity in Mint
State, where it is the fourth-rarest date overall behind the
1921-S, '19-D, and '19-S. Gem examples are rare. The present Select
representative displays surprisingly clean fields for the grade
with warm golden toning over softly frosted mint luster. Liberty's
figure and the central eagle exhibit moderate strike weakness,
which is common on this issue. A high-grade 1921-D is one of the
most important Walking Liberty acquisitions necessary for a
high-ranking Registry Set.(Registry values: N2998)

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.
