    1835 O-110 Half Dollar, PR64
    Ex: George 'Buddy' Byers Collection

    1835 50C PR64 NGC. O-110, R.8 as a Proof. Both Original and Crushed Lettered Edge Restrike proof half dollars are known for 1835, and they are extremely rare, even moreso than for 1834. Just six 1835 proof half dollars are certified at NGC and PCGS, including four originals and two restrikes (11/12). Three of the four originals are graded PR64, and the fourth is PR62. The two restrikes are called PR65 and PR63. The total population of existing proofs probably numbers about eight or nine pieces, including about half a dozen originals and two or three proof restrikes. Those original 1835 proofs are from four different die pairs, O-101, 106, 109, and 110.
    For the half dollar series, the most valuable source of information today is Auction & Mail Bid Prices Realized for Bust Half Dollars by Stephen J. Herrman. This record of auction results is updated twice a year, and includes recent sale information for all proofs. Combining this record with Breen's Proof Encyclopedia and pedigree notes included in auction catalogs over the past 30 years, a census can be compiled, although it is a time-consuming venture.
    This piece has deeply mirrored fields and light cameo contrast beneath steel, gold, and blue toning, with a few marks above the date to aid pedigree research. A few of the hair curls are weak, but most other details are boldly rendered.

    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.
