Superb Cameo Proof 1910 Half Dollar1910 50C PR67 Cameo PCGS. Among business strike Barber half dollars of the Philadelphia Mint, the 1913 through 1915 issues are recognized as important rarities. What is not recognized by most collectors, except for advanced specialists, is the rarity and importance of the 1910 half dollar issue. Four of the five lowest mintage Barber half dollars were productions of the Philadelphia Mint, these five issues including 1914, 1915, 1913, 1892-O, and 1910, from lowest to highest mintage.
How this applies to Proof coins depends on your perspective. Many collectors working on high quality sets of these coins may elect to add a Gem Proof example to fill the Philadelphia Mint holes, given the elusive nature of business strikes. This adds additional demand for these coins, above the demand applied by collectors of just the proof issues. This remarkable example has exceptional contrast between its lustrous devices and deeply mirrored fields. The coloration is mostly pale gold, with deeper russet and blue near the borders. The surfaces are exceptional without blemishes of any nature. This Superb Gem Cameo Proof is tied for finest certified by PCGS. Population: 4 in 67, 0 finer (1/05).

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.
