Description:
1892 Gem Proof Columbian Half
Only 103 Pieces Struck
1892 50C Columbian PR65 PCGS. CAC. Proof Columbian halves are an interesting (and rare) issue. There were 103 proofs struck in 1892 and the striking sequence of these proofs was unusual to say the least. The first 100 pieces were proofs, then the 400th coin (to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the 'Discovery' of America), followed by the 1492nd coin, and finally the 1892nd coin. An unusual striking order, but one that clearly underscores the commemorative nature of the coin.
As with all proof Columbians the waves, planking, globes, and borders are fully detailed. Morgan's initial, just below the rigging, is fully brought up as well. The fields are deeply reflective and the coin's proof status is apparent in spite of the irregular dashes of charcoal-gray and blue toning on each side. Strong magnification will be required to discern the tiny field marks that keep this Gem from an even higher grade. Population: 6 in 65, 4 finer (11/11).
Seller is donating a portion of their proceeds, and Heritage is donating the same portion of the Buyer's Premium, from the sale of this lot to the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution. See page 3 for details. (PCGS# 9295)
