1898 50C PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC. CAC....
It seems demand for proofs during the late 19th and early 20th centuries was relatively low, and the 1898 had a mintage of just 735 proofs. While many of them still exist, few have survived in this high state of preservation. NGC and PCGS have certified only nine 1898 halves in PR67 Ultra Cameo with just four finer (7/11). This is a brilliant proof whose only flaw is a paper-thin line on the upper cheek of Liberty.

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.
