Lot Description
1904 50C PR67 Cameo NGC. By 1904, the powers that be at the Mint had decided to implement changes that would prevent contrast in proof coinage. In general, they succeeded, although happily for today's collectors there are exceptions, such as this piece, whose brilliantly mirrored surfaces contrast nicely with its devices. Completely untoned except for a hint of pale gold near and on the rims, this piece will enhance the appeal of any collection it joins. Unknown in Ultra or Deep Cameo. Census: 5 in 67 Cameo, 1 finer (11/10). From The Smithfield Collection.
