    Exceptional Matte Proof Pattern Junk Dollar

    Republic Sun Yat-sen English Matte-Proof Pattern "Junk" Dollar Year 18 (1929) PR65 NGC, dies prepared at the Royal mint but struck in China, KM-Pn99, L&M-94, Kann-615. One of the six different 1929 Junk Dollar patterns struck by various countries, this English type is instantly recognizable by the roiling seas on the reverse. This Matte-Proof specimen is the first we have seen in this finish or been able to locate in our research, as this rejected pattern was produced for the most part just above the standard of a typical business strike. In addition to the rarity of this exceptional piece, the remarkable state of preservation must also be mentioned as an example certified in a Gem designation is seemingly nearly as rare, this piece being unequalled in Proof at NGC and tied with a single business strike certified in MS65 with none finer at either NGC or PCGS. Whether produced intentionally or a product of mint sport, this example is potentially unique and certain to stand out among the highlights of the most advanced collections of the Chinese Republic.

    民國十八年(1929)孫中山像"霧面精製"背三帆壹圓銀樣。英國版. PR65 NGC, 模具在皇家造幣廠預備,但在中國鑄造。民國十八年孫中山像三帆銀幣一共有五國六種不同幣模,英國版的特色是背面海浪波濤。這枚霧面樣幣品相之佳是我們遇過最好的,相信為獨一無二的孤品。因為這種已被否決的模式在生產質量上都只是較一般鑄造標準稍為好一些。除了其珍稀程度外,還必須提及其出色的品相,能獲評為Gem的例子十分罕見,這枚在NGC的評級中是無與倫比的,無論是NGC或PCGS,都沒有評分高於MS65。這枚無疑能在中華民國幣最高端的收藏品中脫穎而出,實在不容錯過!Ex.
