    Vittorio Emanuele III gold Specimen Prova 100 Lire 1907 SP63 NGC, KM-Pr7, Pag-148. Pre-modification design of 1910-1927 100 Lire, KM50. A fleeting and very rare Prova issue with the word "PROVA" in small lettering to the upper left of the date to the reverse, one of several distinguishing factors that separates this issue from the later circulation type, first struck in 1910. This specimen bears a similar design, though with alterations to Vittorio Emanuele's uniform, as well as other modifications, including the placement of PROVA where the mintmark "R" appears on the circulation type, and significant changes to the reverse background scenery. Semi-medallic in presentation, the luminescent fields are filled with stark mint brilliance, surrounding sharp features bearing a rich coating of golden frost. An attractive coin limited in grade only by light hairlines in the fields, and one of only two "Specimens" holdered by NGC, proving highly collectible in this confirmed, choice conditional state. For reference, the most recent offering that we could locate, the sole example certified finer by NGC, at SP66+?, sold in a European auction for nearly $140,000 in December of 2020.
