Important 1846 Medium Date Half Dollar, PR631846 50C Medium Date PR63 PCGS. We are aware of about a dozen proof 1846 Medium Date half dollars, and a single 1846 Tall Date, as enumerated in our January 2009 FUN sale at lot 3862. There are at least two, and possibly three, die varieties known for the Medium Date proofs. This example is an early die state from a perfect, uncracked reverse die. At least two of the other proofs have reverse die cracks, and the cracks seem to be in different positions. Little past research has been conducted in die varieties of early proof coins.
This pleasing proof, from the Queller Collection, has moderately reflective surfaces beneath deep magenta and iridescent toning on both sides. Every design point on each side is boldly detailed including Liberty's head and foot, all of the star centers, and the eagle's feathers and talons.

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.

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.View More Testimonials
