Description:
Desirable 1892 Columbian Half Dollar PR66
1892 50C Columbian PR66 PCGS. Designed by Olin Lewis Warner, the obverse of the Columbian Half Dollar was engraved by Charles E. Barber, while George T. Morgan executed the reverse. Authorized by the Act of August 5, 1892, funds from the sale of this issue were slated to support the May 1 - October 30, 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. The first 100 coins produced were proofs, as well as the 400th, 1,492nd, and 1,892nd coins that emerged from the press. This brought the total proof production to only 103 examples, and Breen states that precious few of these are still identifiable as specimen strikings. The most easily identifiable feature of this issue is the extraordinary sharpness of strike in the center of the reverse. Whereas business strikes of this type are often weak in that area, this coin exhibits razor sharp definition over the rigging and planks on the Santa Maria. The denticles are also crisp, and the fields reveal deep reflectivity at most angles with some die polish lines (as produced) that are discernible under a loupe. Both sides have toned in rich gunmetal-blue toning with whispers of lilac and crimson evident beneath. Expectantly well preserved for the grade, even close examination with a loupe fails to reveal any mentionable pedigree markers. Population: 3 in 66, 1 finer (12/04).(#9295) (PCGS# 9295)
