    1873 No Arrows Half Dollar, PR67
    Top Example at PCGS, NGC, and CAC

    1873 50C No Arrows PR67 PCGS. CAC. The Mint struck 600 proof Seated half dollars prior to a change in the weight standard that resulted in the addition of arrows on each side of the date on April 1, 1873. All proofs were struck with a Closed 3. As might be expected, specimens are extremely rare at this grade level. PCGS reports five PR67 submissions, including one in MS67+. Additionally, there is a single PR67 Cameo coin at that service. As of (11/16), no specimens have achieved a PR68 assessment from either of the major grading firms, placing this Superb Gem among the finest survivors. Cobalt-blue, violet-gray, and gold meld over the entirety of each side, shrouding seemingly pristine surfaces. Flashy fields beneath the toning provide an added degree of appeal. CAC: 2 in 67, 0 finer (11/16).

    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.
