Lot Description
1861 50C PR66 Cameo NGC. Heritage had the privilege of offering this specimen a touch over five years ago as part of the Jules Reiver Collection. At the time, it was graded PR65, a level that proved too conservative in its rating of both condition and contrast. Certainly the interplay between frosted devices and mirrored fields is at a Cameo level, and the mirrors are better-preserved than expected for a simple Gem. Blue and golden-tan border toning confirms the pedigree and further fuels the eye appeal. Ex: Jules Reiver Collection (Heritage, 1/2006), lot 21340, then graded PR65, realized $4,887.50. From The Slotkin Family Trust Collection.
