Choice Brilliant Proof 1892 Columbian Half Dollar1892 50C Columbian PR64 NGC. An attractive representation of this elusive, largely overlooked proof commemorative that was often mishandled by collectors over the course of the past century. Just 104 proofs are believed struck of the 1892 Columbian half dollar. These were likely presented to dignitaries of the exposition and perhaps a few higher-ups in Washington D.C. as well. The fields are deeply reflective and the devices are slightly frosted, but not enough to provide a cameo effect. The features are crisply delineated, as expected on a multiple struck proof, and each side presents a fully brilliant, untoned appearance. As expected for the grade, the surfaces carry a few scattered hairlines but none worthy of special mention. A lovely proof for the commemorative specialist whose collection is beyond the pale of the more plentiful Mint State Columbians. Census: 14 in 64, 11 finer (1/06). (PCGS# 9295)
