    1892 Barber Half, PR67+ Cameo
    Resplendent Rainbow Toning
    Tied Finest at PCGS

    1892 50C PR67+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A large first-year proof mintage of 1,245 pieces and the new Barber design combine to make 1892 proofs among the most accessible of the entire series. Even at the Superb Gem Cameo level, several pieces exist. Only those with incremental awards such as the Plus designation stand above others. This sharp, high-end Superb Gem is beautifully toned to excel in both eye appeal and strike. Well-frosted devices easily qualify for the Cameo designation, lifting this example to the top of its category. No Cameo or Deep Cameo is finer at PCGS. Population: 10 in 67 (3 in 67+) Cameo, 0 finer; 2 in 67 (1 in 67+) Deep Cameo, 0 finer (7/20).

    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.
