    Extreme Rarity Near Choice Chihli 50 Cents

    Chihli. Kuang-hsü 50 Cents Year 22 (1896) MS62 PCGS, Pei Yang Arsenal mint, KM-Y64, L&M-440, Kann-182, WS-0604, Wenchao-607 (rarity 3 stars). A great rarity within the series both conditionally speaking and as a type, a mere three examples seen by either of the two major grading services ranking finer. This first-year-of-issue minor positively beams with mint quality, hardly a trace of striking weakness present anywhere across the flan, and only the lightest of marks, which quickly slip into insignificance against glassy surface texture. For reference, an AU Details (Surface Hairlines) piece hammered for $15,000 in Stack's 2011 Hong Kong sale, with another, raw example bringing over $43,000 in Baldwin's Hong Sale of the same year.


    光緒二十二年(1896)北洋機器局造五角銀幣。MS62 PCGS。 北洋機器局造。無論任何品相均屬少見,在兩間主要評級公司中,只有三枚的評級比這枚更高。北洋首年發行,原光,幾乎沒有任何明顯的瑕疵,只有最輕的痕跡不影響其表面。据資料顯示,一枚品相AU Details (Surface Hairlines) 于2011年的香港拍賣會上以15,000美元的價格拍出,另一個未評級的例子則在同年的飽德溫香港拍賣會上帶來了43,000美元的價格。
