    1958 Half Dollar, PR68+ Deep Cameo
    Top-Graded Example at PCGS

    1958 50C PR68+ Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Blue Ocean. In 2011, Rick Tomaska estimated that only 200 or 300 1958 Franklin half dollar proofs survived with Deep or Ultra Cameo contrast. Six years later, the population data still reflects that assessment with 231 grading events at PCGS and NGC combined. Impressively, this is the single finest example at PCGS as measured by the Plus designation. Marks are unseen on both sides, as are milk spots that frequently plague this issue. The strike is fully rendered. Seemingly bottomless fields produce the noted contrast. Population: 28 in 68 (1 in 68+) Deep Cameo, 0 finer (6/17).

    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.
