    1952 Franklin Half, PR66 Deep Cameo
    Remarkable Contrast for the Issue

    1952 50C PR66 Deep Cameo PCGS. By 1952 the U.S. Mint was more-or-less recovered from its long World War II-induced proof-striking hiatus, though Franklin half dollar collectors know how challenging the early dates can be to find with any contrast. This PR66 Deep Cameo example is most notable for its luxuriously frosted devices and the gleaming mirrors around them. Population: 9 in 66 Deep Cameo (1 in 66+), 1 finer (11/14).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# C2AR, PCGS# 96693)

    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.
