    Amazing Proof 1897 Half Dollar, PR68 Cameo

    1897 50C PR68 Cameo NGC. A modest production of just 731 proof half dollars came off the coining press in 1897, and few have survived in the nearly pristine condition of this piece. Both sides have brilliant proof surfaces with only the slightest champagne toning confined to the borders. The contrast between the deeply mirrored fields and highly lustrous devices is exceptional. Details in the central design motifs are full and strong with every individual element in bold evidence. This is a remarkable Superb Gem proof that will capture the attention of the most advanced specialist or connoisseur.

    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.
