    Prooflike Low-Mintage Italian Rarity

    Vittorio Emanuele II gold 100 Lire 1872-R MS64 Prooflike NGC, Rome mint, KM19.2, Gig-2, Pag-452. Mintage: 661. A sensational example of this Italian rarity. Owing to its low mintage of only 661 examples, locating survivors in better tiers of preservation proves exceedingly difficult. Of those examples seen by NGC to date, a single MS63 represents the finest non-Prooflike business strike. This offering tops that by a further grade point, adding a Prooflike designation to rank as the finest NGC-certified example, with or without additional attributes, and couples its inspiring Prooflike reflectivity with superior preservation. A beautiful tangerine tone graces the surfaces, adding a unique aesthetic character to this laudable selection, while evidence of slight rotation and re-striking in the central reverse shield serves as a future pedigree marker.
