DescriptionEstados Unidos 50 Centavos 1880 Popayan, KM177.2, MS63 NGC Whittier Collection, an impossibly choice example of this rare one-year type with meticulously sharp details on both sides, appealing soft gray-gold patina and full underlying mint luster. Before this coin came to light collectors of Colombian halves could not even dare to imagine that such an incredible coin could exist. The Popayan Mint was originally opened to strike gold coinage, but over the years various silver types were also produced, always in small quantities. This coinage also circulated heavily so that Popayan silver coins in grades XF and up are virtually unknown. Among the few additional examples of the 50 Centavos 1880 Popayan which are known, none is better than VF!
Estimate: $7,000 - $10,000.
