    1967 Half Dollar, MS69 Ultra Cameo
    Special Mint Set Issue

    1967 50C SMS MS69 Ultra Cameo NGC. When silver coinage was discontinued at the end of 1964, the government also discontinued issuing proof and mint sets, and they stopped putting mintmarks on coins. Beginning in 1965, special five-coin sets were issued under the new name of Special Mint Set. These special sets were issued through 1967, and regular proof sets were again produced in 1968, but now at the San Francisco Mint. While the Special Mint Set coins were substantially higher quality than regular circulation-strike coins, they were not the same quality as proof coins, and for that reason, examples are rarely seen at the top grade levels. This amazing, nearly perfect, Superb Gem has brilliant silver surfaces with extraordinary field-to-device contrast. This is the only MS69 Ultra Cameo at NGC with nothing comparable at PCGS (11/18).(Registry values: N1793)

    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.
