    1871 Half Dollar, PR66 Cameo
    Beautiful Multihued Patina

    1871 50C PR66 Cameo NGC. Cameo examples of this otherwise collectible proof issue are rarely encountered, and Deep Cameos are prohibitively rare. This Premium Gem representative is deeply toned in concentric shades of mint-gold, champagne, ocean-blue, amber-orange, and pale rose, but the field-device contrast is not hindered. The sharp motifs and mirrored fields are free of any distracting contact marks or hairlines. Census: 4 in 66 Cameo, 2 finer (5/15).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27U6, PCGS# 86429)

    Weight: 12.44 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.
