    1892 Half Dollar, PR66 Deep Cameo
    A Rarity With Such Stark Contrast

    1892 50C PR66 Deep Cameo PCGS. The first-year 1892 half dollar is one of the most collectible issues in the Barber series with a relatively large mintage of 1,245 pieces. Deep Cameo specimens are all rarities, however, and this piece is in the top echelon of survivors. Blushes of golden color occur over the thickly frosted motifs and glassy fields without interrupting the natural brilliance of this Premium Gem proof. Population: 5 in 66 (1 in 66+) Deep Cameo, 2 finer (3/19).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 24NU, PCGS# 96539)

    Weight: 12.50 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 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.
