    Description

    1901 Barber Half, PR68 Cameo
    Beautiful Rainbow Peripheries
    Condition Census Registry-Grade Cameo

    1901 50C PR68 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The eye appeal of this high-end Superb Gem Cameo proof easily matches expectations for the near-flawless grade. Undisturbed, gleaming fields accent the satiny, sharply struck design elements, which are also devoid of contact. Thins ribbons of true rainbow color weave through and around the obverse border stars, while both sides of the coin display margins of otherwise blue, violet, and amber toning around champagne interiors. The attractiveness of this coin cannot be overstated.

    PCGS has only certified two other Cameo proofs in this grade (one of which is Plus graded), with none finer. No Deep Cameos are listed this fine. The importance of this piece for Registry collectors is unsurpassed. Population: 3 in 68 (1 in 68+) Cameo, 0 finer (9/20).(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 24P5, PCGS# 86548)

    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.
