Description

Part of Proof Set

1857 50C Half Dollar PR66 NGC. As a testament to the strength of this Platinum Night Auction, we have two examples of the proof 1857 half dollar. This is significant as an unknown, but small number of proofs are believed known today, probably only two to three dozen individual pieces. This is a magnificent, brightly mirrored proof that also shows significant mint frost over the devices. The wonder is why it is not designated as a Cameo. Obverse striking detail is intricate with especially deep definition on Liberty's hair. The feathers on the eagle's leg on the reverse is just a bit shy of complete. Much brilliance is evident on each side with dusky rose and blue patina around the margins.
From The Douglas Collection. (NGC ID# 27TG, PCGS# 6411)
