    1896 Half Dollar, PR67 Deep Cameo
    Sole Finest Deep Cameo at PCGS

    1896 50C PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. PCGS has only certified five proof 1896 Barber half dollars in the Deep Cameo category, and of these, the Simpson coin is the sole finest by the margin of the Plus designation (9/20). This piece is the ultimate Registry coin. Brilliant surfaces yield dramatic field-device contrast and are almost flawlessly preserved. The eagle's right (facing) wing junction is slightly soft as usual, but the remainder of the design is sharply brought up. An eye-catching, conditionally rare proof Barber half. Population: 2 in 67 (1 in 67+) Deep Cameo, 0 finer (9/20).(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 24NY, PCGS# 96543)

    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.
