1874 50C Arrows PR67 PCGS. CAC....
Tied for Finest Graded of the Type
The Arrows proof half dollars were produced to the extent of 550 pieces in 1873 and 700 in 1874. This piece boasts the desired needle-sharp strike visible throughout both sides, producing full details on the star centrils, the sandal, Liberty's head, and the eagle feathers on the reverse. Under a light the patina, deepest at the rims with silver-rose centers, resolves into pinkish-gray with bluish accents, a simply beautiful and problem-free coin. PCGS has never seen a numerically finer example of the type (3/13). (NGC ID# 27UV, PCGS# 6435)
