Lot Description
1892-O 50C MS67 PCGS. Though a small quantity of 1892-O half dollars were saved as first-of-their-kind pieces, few examples of the issue can rival this Superb Gem. Semireflective surfaces are largely silver with green-gold dots at the margins and a rose blush across the portrait's face and neck. Despite a touch of softness at the claw holding arrows, this coin has great all-around detail, and the preservation is as excellent as the grade would imply. This coin is long-established as an important representative, as attested by its green label PCGS holder. That service has graded only one example as MS68 or better (3/12). From The Estate of John C. Hugon.
