Lot Description
1912 $2 1/2 MS65 PCGS. CAC. A beautiful Gem of this rare and underrated issue, one of which Akers writes, "Only the 1911-D, 1914 and 1914-D are more rare, and true gems of the 1912, although they do exist, can only be located with great difficulty." This is a simply splendid piece with thick, crusty, original skin and superlative eye appeal, justly recognized by the CAC approbation and certain to see spirited bidding. Deep reddish-gold in the fields cedes to green-gold in the design recesses, and there are no signs of singular contact. The strike is equally admirable, just shy of full in the center obverse on the headdress ornaments. Population: 57 in 65, 5 finer (6/11).
