1891 Half Dollar, PR66+ Cameo
Last-Year Seated Proof Type

1891 50C PR66+ Cameo NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The last-year proof Seated half production total for the long-running series, which debuted in 1839, was a nominal 600 coins, but the number of circulation strikes, at 200,000 pieces, was a vast increase over the totals of the previous decade. This piece garners the NGC Star designation for exceptional eye appeal. It is a beautifully toned Premium Gem with pastel shades of gold, blue, and lavender on the obverse. The reverse shows a larger area of silver-white, with frosted devices in the center accented by golden rim toning. Census: 2 in 66 (1 in 66+ ) Cameo, 4 finer (9/13).
Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $5.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. (NGC ID# 27UT, PCGS# 86452)

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.
