Rare SMS MS69 1964 Kennedy Half1964 50C MS69 Specimen NGC. The 1964 Special Mint Sets that started appearing at auction some ten years ago have an interesting texture. They don't have the deep prooflike (almost proof) quality of the 1967 SMS coins. They are more similar to the 1965 SMS pieces, but lack the reflectivity seen even on those pieces. Speculation is that some 50 sets were produced, many of which have been broken up in the last ten years. This specimen, like the pieces we offered lst summer, is brilliant, intricately detailed, and displays extensive die polishing. It can be distinguished from the other piece by its lack of a paper thin grease stain on the reverse. Population: 2 in 69, 0 finer (3/04). (#6844) (NGC ID# 27WH, PCGS# 6844)
Weight: 12.50 grams
Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

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.
