Very Scarce, Low Production Issue
The 1878-CC is a very scarce mintmarked half, and scarce for the same reason as the 1878-S: Passage of the Bland-Allison Act diverted the Mint's attention to the production of silver dollars rather than subsidiary coinage. This is a slightly circulated example that has original deep blue-gray toning overall and a slight undertone of reddish patina. A few field marks are scattered over each side, but none are singularly remarkable.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24KP, PCGS# 6359)
Service and Handling Description: Coins & Currency (view shipping information)
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.
