Description:
Desirable PR64 1850 Seated Half
1850 50C PR64 NGC. WB-102, with the lower right curve of the 0 doubled. The 1850 proof half dollar comes from an unknown, but extremely small mintage. Randy Wiley and Bill Bugert, in their The Complete Guide to Liberty Seated Half Dollars, suggest that at least four examples are known. In our January 2008 FUN sale, we listed four separate pieces in the roster developed as part of the Phil Kaufman 1850 proof half dollar writeup, along with seven "additional appearances" that may or may not be duplicates of one another, or of the four aforementioned coins. In any event, we are unable to conclusively match the current near-Gem with any 1850 proof halves in our plated catalogs.
Dappled cobalt-blue and russet patina races over luminous surfaces, and a solid strike leaves bold definition on the design elements. Only the left (facing) claw exhibits minor softness. A few minute marks preclude Gem classification; we mention the following solely for pedigree purposes: a milling mark in the right obverse field, a series of horizontal ticks on Liberty's abdomen, and a couple of grazes at the left (facing) elbow. A magnificent representative of this important rarity. Census: 2 in 64, 1 finer (6/09).

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.
