1964 Kennedy Half, PR68 Deep Cameo
Popular Accented Hair Variety

1964 50C Accented Hair PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. A marvelous example of this first-year variety, one that was issued early in the year before the new Kennedy half design was modified to deemphasize the wavy hair below President Kennedy's part. It was rumored that the President's widow, Jacqueline Kennedy, disliked the strong detail in the hair. A practiced eye can spot the strong, incisive hair detail that marks the variety with little problem, but the easiest identifier, as noted in Cherrypickers' fourth edition, volume two, is the broken bottom-left serif on the I of LIBERTY. Few coins indeed can match the quality of the present silver-white, near-flawless specimen, and the contrast between the inky-black fields and crisply frosted devices is remarkable. Population: 8 in 68 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (4/13).
Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 2239; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 3919.
From The MKJ Collection, Part II.(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.
