Lot Description
1940 50C PR68 NGC. This is an essentially perfect proof Walker, and even a loupe fails to reveal any mentionable contact marks. The early proof sets were packaged in cellophane envelopes, and with the passing years they became more and more brittle; eventually, many of them split on the sides. This piece appears to have come from an envelope that split on the right side, as both obverse and reverse are deeply toned in that area, while brilliant elsewhere. An interesting and impressive type coin. Census: 51 in 68, 0 finer (8/12).
