1964 Accented Hair Kennedy Half
PR68 Deep Cameo, Eight at PCGS

1964 50C Accented Hair PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. FS-401. This appears to be the first time we have handled a Deep Cameo PCGS-certified example of the 1964 Accented Hair at this grade level since our 2008 and 2009 FUN Signature auctions, when similarly graded specimens realized $12,650 and $11,500, respectively. PCGS has seen only eight submissions in this grade -- likely not all separate coins, trying for the elusive PR69 level -- and we know first-hand that that is far fewer than the number of collectors vying for examples for their Registry Sets (3/13).

Few 1964 silver proof Kennedy halves of any kind, whether Accented Hair or no, show sufficient contrast for the PCGS Deep Cameo designation, but this is an untoned, no-questions example of remarkable quality. Given the recent strength in series prices, we think this piece could set a new record when it crosses the block. Prepared series fans will act accordingly. Population: 8 in 68 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (3/13).
From The Elite Cameo Collection.(Registry values: N991) (NGC ID# 24WG, PCGS# 96801)

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.
