    1968-S Kennedy Half, PR70 Deep Cameo
    Key 40% Issue in This Grade

    1968-S 50C PR70 Deep Cameo PCGS. The 1968-S 40% silver proof is a key issue among the early Kennedy halves, as most grade no better than PR67 or PR68, and many lack deep cameo contrast. This pristine PR70 Deep Cameo is a winner on both counts, showing impeccable preservation and optimally contrasted surfaces. Population: 16 in 70 Deep Cameo (7/15).(Registry values: N491)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 6MYL, PCGS# 96804)

    Weight: 11.50 grams

    Metal: 80% Silver, 20% Copper, 20.90% Inner core Silver, 79.10% Copper

    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.
