Pristine 1964 Accented Hair Kennedy Half
PR69 Cameo, FS-401

1964 50C Accented Hair PR69 Cameo PCGS. FS-401. Type One Reverse, rays broken at stars, straight FG. The Accented Hair proofs, although collected as a Cherrypickers' variety, actually represent the first type of Kennedy half dollar introduced. Mint engraver Gilroy Roberts recounted how President Kennedy's widow, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, disliked the heavy hair detailing and insisted that it be changed.
The stubby lower-left serif on the L of LIBERTY is an easy pickup point for collectors, as well as the prominent V shape in Kennedy's hair. This untoned silver-white piece is moderately contrasted, sufficient for the Cameo designation, but the surfaces throughout show incredible preservation, making this coin one of only nine in PR69 Cameo at PCGS, with none finer (7/11). The finest Deep Cameo Accented Hairs are a handful in PR68. One of the keys to the complete Kennedy half variety Registry Set.(Registry values: N491) (NGC ID# 24WG, PCGS# 86801)

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.
