    Description

    Victoria Specimen 50 Cents 1881-H SP65 PCGS, Heaton mint, KM6. An exceptional offering, of high rarity in any grade and one of just two certified at this gem level (with none higher). Semi-matte surfaces glisten with faint reflectivity, blushing through deep gray tone akin to lightning though distant storm clouds. Previous catalogues describe this issue as being struck in later years as salesman samples due to die rust and shoddy production; however, the quality of this piece seems very high and Victoria's portrait appears razor-sharp. We last handled this magnificent example in September 2006, where it realized $16,100.

    Estimate: $12,000 - $15,000.
