1950 Half Dollar, Important PR65 Ultra Cameo Quality

1950 50C PR65 Ultra Cameo NGC. Proof Half Dollar production resumed at the Philadelphia Mint in 1950 after a seven-year hiatus. By then, Sinnock's Franklin design had replaced the Walking Liberty motif of Weinman. With the lowest mintage (51,386 pieces) in the proof Franklin Half series and well-known rarity at the Gem Ultra (a.k.a. Deep at PCGS) Cameo level, the 1950 is always in demand among advanced specialists. Richly frosted over the devices with glistening, mirrored fields, the present Gem is peripherally toned in more or less even champagne-russet iridescence. Solidly graded as a Gem, there are no mentionable blemishes.
From The Dennis Ridings Collection. (NGC ID# 27VA, Variety PCGS# 96691, Base PCGS# 96690)

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.
