    Rare, High Grade Proof Columbian Half

    1892 50C Columbian PR66 PCGS. One of only 103 proofs struck at the Columbian Exposition in 1892. Very few pieces remain identifiable as proofs today, and all too often the ones that are encountered are impaired. This is a deeply reflective example that displays softly frosted mint luster over the devices, which in turn yields a moderate cameo contrast. As one would expect from a proof, the striking details are uncommonly well defined with sharp definition on Columbus' hair, the ship's rigging, and the planks of the ship. Brilliant over both sides with just the slightest hint of golden patina around the margins. A great rarity that should be of interest to a wide range of commemorative collectors. Population: 4 in 66, 1 finer (5/01). (NGC ID# BYMW, PCGS# 9295)

    Weight: 12.50 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
