1889 Superb Cameo Proof Half Dollar
1889 50C PR67 Cameo NGC. Untoned, silver-white features are
well-frosted over the devices and deeply mirrored in the fields.
The surfaces show no distracting abrasions -- a feature that
confirms the validity of the PR67 designation. Virtually all major
features are sharply struck, although we note some incomplete
reverse detail on IN GOD WE TRUST that appears to be the result of
a partially filled die. Produced toward the end of the Seated half
dollar series, the 1889 has a limited mintage of 12,000 business
strikes and 711 proofs. Census: 3 in 67 Cameo, 0 finer (10/12).

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.
