    1897 Half Dollar, PR67 Deep Cameo
    Near-Brilliant With Stark Contrast

    1897 50C PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. The Deep Cameo population of proof 1897 Barber halves is evenly split between PCGS and NGC, and most such coins are in high grades, namely PR66 to PR68. Demand for these top-quality coins is unceasing among Registry Set collectors and series specialists. Anyone who has personally seen a Superb Gem Deep Cameo example of this issue knows first-hand that the quality of the strike and the depth of mirroring in the fields are often unsurpassed by any other proof issue in the series. The coin offered here showcases these qualities with near-perfection. A hint of gold warms the peripheries, leaving the dramatically contrasted interiors with frost-white devices. Slight softness on the right shield corner is the only noticeable surface imperfection, and it is truly minor. Population: 16 in 67 (3 in 67+) Deep Cameo, 6 finer (1/18).
    From The Glacier Park Collection. (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24NZ, PCGS# 96544)

    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.
