    1942-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar, MS67
    Conditionally Rare This Fine

    1942-S 50C MS67 PCGS. CAC. The 1942-S Walking Liberty half dollar claims a substantial mintage of more than 12.7 million pieces. Unfortunately, the issue was not well-made and the 1942-S is a leading strike rarity in the series. The 1942-S is a collectible issue in grades up to the MS66 level, but most examples seen are softly detailed on the centers and finer coins are condition rarities. This spectacular Superb Gem exhibits unusually sharp definition in most areas, but a touch of the usual softness is evident on the wreath hand and the eagle's trailing leg. The impeccably preserved brilliant surfaces radiate vibrant mint luster, with terrific eye appeal. This coin should find a home in the finest collection or Registry Set. Population: 12 in 67 (2 in 67+), 0 finer. CAC: 2 in 67, 0 finer (8/21).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 24S8, PCGS# 6617)

    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.
