Description

1896 PR 58 PCGS. A circulated proof example, one of just 128 originally struck. Numerous light abrasions show in the deeply mirrored fields. The original proof surfaces are immediately apparent in the protected areas surrounding the lettering and devices. The reverse shows the pebbly, orange-peel surfaces common to proof gold issues, confirming the original striking status of this coin. Both sides display an intense, yellow-gold color. Depending on your viewpoint, this is either a tragic destruction of a proof, or it is an opportunity to acquire a super-rare coin at a bargain price. We prefer to look on the bright side and say that anyone viewing this coin will realize immediately that it is something special. (NGC ID# 26EH, PCGS# 9112)
