Description:
1866 Motto Half Dollar, PR67 Cameo
First-Year Type, Tied for Finest Graded
1866 50C Motto PR67 Cameo NGC. Apple-green, honey-gold, fire-red, and orange embrace the peripheries of this first-year Motto proof. The frosty devices demonstrate ample contrast with the glassy fields, and the strike is razor-sharp save for slight incompleteness on the eagle's left (facing) ankle. The motto was added to 1866 coinage as a result of the Act of March 3, 1865, which in turn was inspired by an 1861 letter from Reverend M. R. Watkinson to Treasury Secretary Salmon P. Chase. Only 725 proofs were issued, and few if any of the survivors can compare with the eye appeal of the present Superb Gem. Census: 3 in 67 Cameo, 0 finer (3/13).

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.
