Description

Important 1826 Bust Half Dollar PR64

1826 50C PR64 PCGS. O-101, R.2. (R.7 as a proof). When Walter Breen authored his proof Encyclopedia after years of extensive observation, he had never heard of this variety being used to produce a proof striking. Later, when Breen added another fifteen years of numismatic research and note taking, producing his magnificent Complete Encyclopedia, he did note that one proof was reported from this die pairing, and this may well be that coin. All told, the proof mintage for 1826 Half Dollars is thought to have been less than ten coins, most being from the O-102 die marriage.
One of the most appealing aspects of this rarity is the phenomenal color. The margins have splendid cobalt-blue accents while the centers are primarily pearl-gray and golden-rose. The major design elements are frosted, and provide ample contrast with the subtly reflective fields. Beneath the bust of Liberty, there are faint pinscratches extending nearly to the date, and these will serve to identify this coin in the future. An important rarity for the advanced Bust Half Dollar collector. Population: 1 in 64, 0 finer, NGC has certified a single PR65 (6/05).(#6203) (NGC ID# 27SF, PCGS# 6203)

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.
