    Cameo PR67 1886 Half Dollar
    Ex: Stokely

    1886 50C PR67 Cameo PCGS. CAC. The "second variety" published in Breen's proof Encyclopedia, with minute extra outlines on all stars save for 6, 8, and 9, and a closed 6 in the date. Many of the 5,000 business strikes have been passed off as proofs, so this is an issue where authentication is of prime importance. This is unquestionably a true proof, lacking the clash marks seen on business strikes and exhibiting other diagnostics as enumerated by Breen.
    This specimen also exhibits delightful tab toning on each side, as sunset-orange centers meld into electric-blue and pink-champagne borders. The translucent toning lets the mirrors shine through, and the surfaces are exquisitely preserved. A tiny die crack appears between the two lowest drapery folds, behind the sandal. This is the single finest Cameo example known to PCGS (6/11), the same status it held when it was part of the Stokely Collection.
    From The Stephen Stokely #1 PCGS Registry Set of Proof Seated Half Dollars (Heritage, 8/2006), lot 5256.
    From The Daryl J. Haynor Collection. (NGC ID# 27UM, PCGS# 86447)

    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.
