1870-CC Half Dollar, VF35
1870-CC 50C VF35 PCGS. WB-5. The 1870-CC is the first half
dollar delivery from the legendary Carson City Mint. It is also the
scarcest CC-mint half dollar in terms of the total number of pieces
known. Regarding condition rarity, the closest competitor is the
1878-CC. Rated an R.5 in Fine/VF by Wiley-Bugert, higher graded
pieces are extremely scarce and rarely offered in the marketplace.
This is a lovely, problem-free, and original example of this Carson
City rarity. The surfaces are light gray overall with darker gray
accents surrounding the devices. There are only a few small marks
scattered over each side, none of which are of individual
significance. In fact, the only surface mark that could be used as
a pedigree identifier is a speck of (perhaps removable) debris just
behind Liberty's ear. Well defined for the grade and evenly worn
over the high points. A pleasing and attractive example of this key
Carson City issue.

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.
