Description:
Appealing 1859 PR63 Cameo Seated Half
1859 50C PR63 Cameo NGC. Type One Reverse. The tops of LF in HALF are close. This brilliant proof comes from only the second year that the Mint began publicly advertising proof coins for sale to collectors. Only 800 proofs were minted of this issue, and 748,000 circulation strikes. The Wiley-Bugert Seated half reference calls the 1859 "A scarce date. Underrated and sometimes mistaken as common." The present coin is silver-white, with frosty devices and well-mirrored fields. A couple of obverse luster breaks and tiny contact marks account for the grade, but the eye appeal is right. (PCGS# 86413)

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.
