1874-CC 50C Arrows MS63 PCGS. CAC....
"You could say that the silver content in half dollars had increased, just like you could say that one of the whiskers in Senator William Stewart's beard was too long. Anyone who considered this additional .00169 of an ounce to be an increase might just have been a candidate for an accountant position at Ebenezer Scrooge & Company."
The necessity of the arrows aside, collectors today recognize their appearance as marking a desirable subtype. This elegant Select coin, lustrous beneath layers of rich blue, violet, and peach patina, is well-defined and gorgeous. A great combination of Old West charm and impressive condition. Population: 2 in 63, 5 finer (11/10).

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.
