Lovely 1830 Cameo Proof Half Dollar

1830 50C PR62 Cameo PCGS. O-103, R.1. The following diagnostics attribute the variety: the stars have round, blunt points; the right sides of the second T in STATES and the I in PLURIBUS are in line; there is a fine die defect line from the center arrowpoint to the milling; and the C in AMERICA is punched low in relation to adjacent letters. The bright surfaces of this example are faintly toned in a soft gold color, and a mild cameo contrast is established between the lightly frosted devices and the proof finish on the fields. The design elements are sharply struck, save for softness in the star centers along the right obverse border, and on the upper arrowhead. The milling is virtually complete on both sides, and the design features are nicely centered on the planchet. No significant contact marks are apparent on either side, though a few wispy hairlines in the fields preclude a higher grade. This will be a marvelous addition to a Capped Bust half dollar collection. Population: 1 in 62, 0 finer (7/04).(#6209) (PCGS# 6209)

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.
