Description:
1883 Seated Half Dollar, PR67 Cameo
Low-Mintage Date, None Graded Higher
1883 50C PR67 Cameo PCGS. The Seated Liberty half dollar business strikes from 1879-1890 (as well as the quarters and some of the dimes) have suffered from benign neglect by all but series specialists, as their miserly mintages -- due to the enormous Morgan silver dollar coinages of that era, among other factors -- have gone largely unrecognized. The effect of this has been to put added pressure on the proof issues from collectors seeking a choice example. In the case of the 1883 Seated half, only 8,000 business strikes were coined, compared to 1,039 proofs.
This silver-white specimen offers spectacularly brilliant, untoned surfaces with black-on-silver contrast against the snowy devices. This coin is essentially perfect and sharply struck. A trivial contact "dot" in the left obverse field, between stars 2 and 3, is mentioned for pedigree purposes. Population: 3 in 67 Cameo, 0 finer (10/12).

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.
