1858 Seated Half Dollar, PR67
First Year of Collector Distribution
The Finest PCGS-Certified Specimen
1858 50C PR67 PCGS. Years ago, 80 coins was the reported mintage for all 1858 silver proof coins, although today we understand that the actual mintage was quite a bit higher, perhaps 200 to 300 pieces for each denomination. It is doubtful that the exact mintage will ever be ascertained, as contemporary records are lacking. During 1858, the Mint began widespread distribution of proof coins to collectors with greatly increased mintages over previous years.
On this 1858-dated Seated half dollar, the date is slightly above center in the space between the base and border, with the 5 nearly touching the base. Carefully made dies show few identifying characteristics. Short points project from dentils over the cap and star 9, and the rightmost part of the rock below Liberty's foot has missing detail from lapping. The reverse has numerous faint die lines in the fields, along with a projection from the right side of the fourth vertical stripe.
Both sides of this lovely Superb Gem proof have deeply mirrored proof surfaces with light cameo contrast. The design elements are bold as expected. Delicate gold toning is lighter at the center with increasing intensity approaching the borders. Splashes of brilliant blue and pale violet add to the overall eye appeal of this example. The surfaces show faint planchet striations that are remnants of the minting process. An amazing coin for the specialist or type collector. This is the sole finest PCGS-certified survivor by two points (7/11).

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.
