    1882 Half Dollar, MS67 Prooflike
    Finest in Certified Prooflike Format

    1882 50C WB-101, MS67 Prooflike NGC. Mirrored surfaces surround lightly frosted central elements with light, reddish-gold toning that deepens at the borders, there joined by a few steel-blue accents. The strike is sharp throughout this lustrous Superb Gem. The late-series Seated halves often require collectors to settle for a proof rather than a business strike in high grades. The low mintage of 4,400 pieces for circulation suggests several prooflike survivors may exist, but PCGS historically has not identified prooflike half dollars and NGC recognizes fewer than a dozen pieces in either Prooflike or Deep Prooflike format. Importantly, the present coin is the finest in either category (1/17). Census: 1 in 67 Prooflike, 0 finer (1/17).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 24KV, Variety PCGS# 76364, Base PCGS# 6364)

    Weight: 12.50 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    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.
