1862 Seated Half Dollar, PR66 Cameo NGC1862 50C PR66 Cameo NGC. Vivid russet and electric-blue toning encircles flashy, untoned centers. Both the portrait of Liberty and the eagle are fully detailed, with frostiness that provides ample contrast with the surrounding fields. Survivors from the 550-coin proof delivery of this issue have enjoyed lesser or greater demand, as market opinion has fluctuated for the business strikes. At the PR66 Cameo grade level, however, there can be no debate about the rarity, desirability, or importance of the 1862 Half Dollar. After all, NGC and PCGS combined report a mere two specimens in this grade, neither service having seen a single coin any finer, with the Cameo designation (11/03). (#86416)

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.
