A Splendid Proof Half Pond!
Republic gold Proof Half Pond 1892,
KM9.1, Hern-Z38, double
shaft, reeded edge, estimated mintage 20 pieces (Hern), PR64 Cameo
NGC, a wondrous specimen possessing fabulous eye appeal: perfect
impression of the dies, fields so deeply mirrored that they seem to
be bottomless pools of golden light, Kruger's bust crisply detailed
with subtle contrast against the field but the reverse motif and
legend are heavily frosted, perfect rims sharply squared off with
wire edges -- all of these qualities producing a coin of stunning
eye appeal. The surfaces possess the subtle orange-peel texture
seen only on genuine proofs. The numerical grade assigned to this
superb coin may be a bit conservative, but the high degree of
technical quality is unquestionable to the discerning eye. We have
never seen or heard of a finer or more beautiful specimen.
