Intensely Contrasted 1964 Kennedy Half
PR69 Deep Cameo, Registry Set Essential

1964 50C PR69 Deep Cameo PCGS. Precious few of the 1964 proof Kennedy halves in existence ever attain the Deep Cameo designation from PCGS. Most examples were produced from well-used dies that showed little or no mint frost remaining on the devices, ruling out the Cameo or the much-rarer Deep Cameo rating.
This piece, however, shows a generous layer of intense mint frost over all devices on both sides, with profound field reflectivity that produces the coveted "black-on-silver" contrast so desired--and pursued--in this series. The surfaces are essentially pristine, as demanded of the grade, although a loupe reveals a few tiny obverse flecks behind the portrait. The 90% silver first-year key to the Kennedy proof series, and a Registry Set essential. PCGS has certified only 70 in this grade, and there are none finer at that service (4/09).(Registry values: N491) (NGC ID# 24WF, PCGS# 96800)

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.
