That offered in this lot has exceptional contrast with fully lustrous devices and nicely mirrored fields. The center of each side is essentially brilliant with just a wisp of champagne color, surrounded by deeper gold, lilac, and blue toning. The surfaces have a few minor lint marks and other blemishes, but only a single raised bubble in the field below the inside base of the final A serves to mark the pedigree. This is the finest certified Cameo Proof example of the date, and may represent one of the most appealing examples regardless of designation. Population: 1 in 65 Cameo, 0 finer (8/05).

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.
