Description:
The Single Finest Certified Proof 1892 Columbian Half Dollar, PR68 * Cameo NGC
1892 50C Columbian PR68 * Cameo NGC. What can we say? When it rains, it pours. This was the third proof 1892 Columbian Half Dollar consigned to this sale, and it is the finest of the three coins. An unrivalled specimen as far as NGC and PCGS are concerned (4/02), the diagnostics are the same as on the other two coins in this sale. We do note, however, that the central reverse may be even more completely defined. Glassy reflectivity shimmers in the fields with golden-orange highlights drifting toward the distinctly defined denticles. The billowy mint frost that overlays the devices is the final requisite of the noteworthy Cameo designation. With extraordinary eye appeal and unsurpassable technical merits, we suggest that Commemorative specialists enter strong bids for this numismatic rarity. (PCGS# 9295)
