Desirable 1888 Victoria 50 Cents MS63

Victoria 50 Cents 1888 Obverse 3, KM6, MS63 PCGS, Ex: Alston-Grossman. The 1888 Victoria 50 Cents has a recorded mintage of 60,000 coins, divided between the H2 and H3 obverses, with the H2 somewhat more elusive. This is an interesting issue that perhaps requires reassessment: One notes that this date, of all the Victoria 50 Cents, has the lowest-graded examples as the finest in Mint State, at MS63. While the incredibly rare 1890H has two Mint State pieces, both in MS64, the 1888 shows 10 Mint State pieces at PCGS, with four MS63 the finest, including the present coin (7/09).

This is the H3 obverse as Charlton outlines, with a larger space between the ribbon and bow. Original pinkish-violet toning covers both sides, A few light ticks on the Queen's cheek and the obverse fields seemingly account for the grade, but this is still a coin of notable quality overall, tied for finest at PCGS.
