    1950 Half Dollar, PR66 Cameo
    Rare and Undervalued

    1950 50C PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. The year 1950 marked the resumption of proof coins at the Philadelphia Mint after a lapse of eight years; 51,386 proof sets were struck in 1950. Rick Tomaska (2011) writes that the quality of the 1950 proof Franklins is very poor due to most exhibiting shallow proof mirrors and pitting on the high points. He further contends that "deeply mirrored gem 1950 Proof Franklins are rare, and appear to be very undervalued at current price levels." The Premium Gem Cameo in the present lot shows considerable field-device contrast and impeccably preserved surfaces. This piece is well deserving of the CAC sticker. Population: 27 in 66 Cameo, 8 finer (6/13).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 27VA, PCGS# 86691)

    Weight: 12.50 grams

    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.

    Another major house refused the work stating it was too unique for the artist. Heritage saw that as an advantage!
