    British Colony. George V 9 Piastres 1913 MS65 NGC, KM13. A key date for the denomination, one of just 50,000 examples struck, and extremely rare quality in this Gem grade, with most survivors showing evidence of circulation along with handling from improper storage over time. This minimally marked example is bathed is delicate green and gold patina, with its dazzling luster retaining it fully original properties; the fact that it has survived so lovely is essentially a miracle. Easily the finest we have seen and the single-finest example graded by NGC, with the closest comparable being a pair of MS63s. A major opportunity for the Cypriot set-builder.
