Description:
1855/54 Half Dollar, Gem Proof
Only Eight Examples Believed Known
1855/54 50C Arrows PR65 NGC. FS-301, WB-102. The 1855/54 half dollar is very rare in proof format, and probably fewer than 10 specimens still exist. PCGS reports only five pieces in all grades, but NGC does not specify how many examples of the overdate variety have been graded (7/11). As of September 2008 we could account for eight distinct specimens, including this example, and there is nothing to indicate that another has surfaced.
The crossbar of the 4 is strong on this example. The fields are brightly reflective, and each side has blue and gold toning interspersed. By way of identification, slight weakness is noted on star 1 and the eagle's left (facing) wing.
This piece is undoubtedly one of the finest of the eight known 1855/54 proof half dollars. The Phil Kaufman specimen, which has the top spot in the Condition Census, was graded PR65 Cameo by NGC. The present coin is tied for second with a PR65 example from the Norweb Collection. An outstanding representative of this rare and important Seated Liberty variety.
From The Oliver Collection. (NGC ID# 24LE, PCGS# 6409)

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.
