    Remarkably Toned, Superb Proof 1892 Barber Half Dollar

    1892 50C PR68 PCGS. The 1892 has an enduring popularity with collectors as the first year of issue for the Barber series, and it is also one of the most available dates due to extensive hoarding. This is an obviously original and untampered-with coin that has deeply reflective fields beneath multiple layers of toning. Each side exhibits similar toning patterns with dominant sea-green and purple-rose colors. Although the patina is rather deep in hue, it does nothing to obscure the underlying flash of the highly reflective fields. A remarkably well preserved Superb Proof and one of the finest thus far certified. Population: 4 in 68, 0 finer (1/05).
    From the Bruce Scher #1 All-Time PCGS Registry Set.(#6539) (Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 24NU, PCGS# 6539)

    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.
