    1950 Franklin Half, PR67+ Cameo
    Vivid Peripheral Toning, CAC
    Tied for Finest Certified at PCGS

    1950 50C PR67+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. The introduction of Plus grading shook up PCGS Registry collecting, and in the case of proof Franklin half dollar enthusiasts, Plus grades created a new tier of rarity to pursue. This representative ranks with just one other as the finest Cameo obtainable in a PCGS holder, and is more than a full grade point finer than the highest-graded Deep Cameo at that service -- an ideal combination for the advanced Registry Set competitor. This Plus-graded coin, which has the added bonus of a CAC green label, is magnificently preserved with solid core contrast -- substantial white-on-black effects, and narrow border patina that is colorfully iridescent, especially in blue and gold-to-orange hues. Of the 25 PR67 Cameo submissions at PCGS, this is one of only three in PR67+ Cameo, tied for finest within the designation. Population: 3 in 67+ Cameo, 0 finer. CAC: 17 in 67, 1 finer (3/20).

    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.
