Description:
PR66 Cameo 1865 Seated Half
1865 50C PR66 Cameo NGC. Few of the 500 proof half dollars produced in 1865 have survived in this level of preservation. Indeed, NGC and PCGS combined have seen only 11 Premium Gem proofs with the Cameo designation, and a mere three finer (10/06). On the present example, frosted devices and mirrored fields yield eye-catching contrast at all angles, and when viewed from directly overhead, the surfaces virtually present a "white-on-black" finish, particularly on the obverse. Whispers of golden-tan patina hug the obverse margins, which are joined on the reverse borders by iridescent aqua-blue and purple coloration. A light, unobtrusive pinscratch in the field to the right of stars 4 to 6 serves as a pedigree identifier. The strike is razor-sharp, with excellent delineation apparent in Liberty's hair and foot and on the eagle. (PCGS# 86419)

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.
