Description:

Cameo PR64 1845 Half Dollar
Singular Survivor
1845 50C PR64 Cameo PCGS. CAC. The only Cameo proof 1845 half dollar certified at PCGS and NGC, and one of just four certified proof 1845 half dollars at the two grading services. Our roster records seven different specimens, including six available to collectors. However, two of those have been absent from the marketplace for more than 30 years. Heritage has handled three of the other four specimens.

1. PR66 NGC. James Kelly (1946); John Jay Pittman (David Akers, 5/1998), lot 1711, as part of a complete 1845 proof set; Kaufman Collection; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 3031.
2. PR64 Cameo PCGS. FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 2889; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2012), lot 3247, realized $57,500; the present coin.
3. PR64 NGC. F.C.C. Boyd; World's Greatest Collection (Numismatic Gallery, 4/1945), lot 273; Stack's (3/1965), lot 447; Superior Galleries (10/1990), lot 3662; Heritage (5/2008), lot 719.
4. PR63 PCGS. Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Eliasberg Estate (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997), lot 1929; Phil Kaufman; Bowers and Merena (1/1999), lot 1142; Richmond Collection (David Lawrence, 3/2005), lot 1789; American Numismatic Rarities (6/2006), lot 1487.
5. Proof. Smithsonian Institution.
6. Proof. New England (7/1978), lot 878.
7. Proof. RARCOA (1/1973), lot 872

A stray die chip appears below the left side of the 8, perhaps a diagnostic feature of proofs. The same die chip is visible on plates of five different examples. Several vertical shield lines cross numerous horizontal lines of the shield on the reverse.
This specimen has excellent contrast with light gold toning and peripheral accents. Both sides have fully mirrored fields, and boldly defined, lustrous devices. A few trivial hairlines fail to detract from the overall beauty of this near-Gem Cameo proof. Population: 1 in 64 Cameo, 0 finer (12/12). (PCGS# 86389)

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.
