PR67 Cameo 1884 Half Dollar
Among Finest Certified

1884 50C PR67 Cameo NGC. Production of the half dollar was again neglected in 1884. Only 875 proofs and 4,400 business strikes were coined, due to continuing high mintages of silver dollars. A majority of proof 1884 halves exhibit negligible cameo contrast, but the present specimen provides obvious white-on-black distinction.
This Cameo Superb Gem is one of the five graded by the two services, with none seen finer (9/11). None have been certified as Ultra Cameo by either service. Completely untoned surfaces yield a delightful white-on-black contrast, and are immaculately preserved. In addition to these wonderful attributes, all of the design elements are sharply impressed.
Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 2893, which realized $16,100. (NGC ID# 27UK, PCGS# 86445)

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.
