    1869 Half Dollar, PR66 Cameo
    Deeply Contrasted

    1869 50C PR66 Cameo PCGS. Plenty of perceptible field-device contrast emanates from each side of this Premium Gem Cameo proof 1869 half dollar, from a recorded production of 600 coins. The central areas are silver with a light wash of amber and copper-gold color that deepens noticeably at the rims, a beautiful effect. Minute doubling or repunching shows on a few of the left-side stars, and the strike is far superior to most examples, some of which show GOD weak on the reverse. The few visible signs of contact, on Liberty's left (facing) thigh and calf and in the right lower obverse field, are quite trivial and undistracting. Population: 3 in 66 Cameo, 1 finer (4/13). (NGC ID# 27U4, PCGS# 86427)

    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.
