Lot Description
1887 25C PR67 PCGS. Ex: Benson Collection. The obverse is deeply toned in murky shades of dark-violet and cobalt-blue, with gold, gray-green, and lavender patina on the reverse. The fields display watery, deep reflectivity, and the surfaces overall seem impeccably preserved and mark-free. This date was restricted to only 710 proofs and 10,000 business strikes, making it relatively scarce in all grades, and rare as a Superb Gem. Population: 3 in 67, 0 finer (3/04). Ex: Benson Collection, Part II (Ira & Larry Goldberg, 2/02), lot 753, which realized $6037.50. From the JFS Collection.
