A Landmark Offering
For the most part, collectors looking at the proof 1950 half dollar issue are forced to choose between surface quality and contrast. Per Tomaska: "Many gem lightly frosted examples exist, and many examples also exist with heavier contrast but with heavily hairlined or heavily glue-stained surfaces. A problem-free, minimally hairlined PF-65 1950 Franklin with significant cameo contrast is rare."
Going beyond the PR65 designation is an even more challenging exercise. In Tomaska's words: "Examples grading PF-66 Cam[eo] are seldom encountered, while Cameo PF-67s have always been excessively rare." In fact, the PR67+ Cameo example offered here is the single finest PCGS-graded example regardless of Cameo designation (6/11). The fields show a faint but clear golden overtone with just a few tiny white spots visible on close inspection, and the contrast is as undeniable as the eye appeal. This is a landmark offering for the discerning collector of Franklin half dollars or modern U.S. coinage in general.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 27VA, PCGS# 86691)
Service and Handling Description: Coins & Currency (view shipping information)
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.
