Lot Description
1865 50C MS66 PCGS. Satiny throughout with a light dusting of charcoal-gray patina on each side that greatly enhances the overall eye appeal of the piece. Under incandescent light, lovely iridescent sea-green and rose toning appears in the fields and near the borders. The 1865 is a highly challenging issue in Mint State grades, and Gem and better examples are particularly elusive. Boldly struck with nicely defined stars, a crisp portrait, and sharp feather and talon details on the eagle. Careful inspection only reinforces the impression that this amazing coin is one of the finest 1865 halves a numismatist could imagine. PCGS has certified just three pieces in MS66, with none finer (2/08).
