Singular PR66 Cameo 1858 Half Dollar1858 50C PR66 Cameo NGC. The 1858 proof issues were the first to receive wider, systematic distribution as sets and officially recorded mintage figures. In the case of the silver proofs, "300+" pieces were produced, a reflection of both stated production and the uncertainty induced by some of the Mint's more questionable practices at the time. However many coins were created, it is doubtful that one could find a more beautiful proof 1858 half dollar than this PR66 Cameo representative, border-toned blue and gold with silver interiors that show sharp contrast between mirrors and frost. One of just three Cameo examples certified by NGC and the finest by three points (3/11).

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.

The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.View More Testimonials
