Lot Description
1904 50C PR68 Cameo NGC. Just 14 Cameo examples of this issue have been certified by NGC, and many of them show little in the way of frost on the devices. While this high-end specimen shows the chromelike mirrors that define many brilliant-era proofs, the light but distinct frost over the central devices is impossible to ignore, especially on the reverse. A magnificently preserved specimen that appears virtually faultless to the unaided eye; an apparent mark below the word IN on the obverse is actually a holder flaw and in no way affects the coin. Census: 1 in 68 Cameo, 1 in 68 S Cameo, 0 finer (3/11). From The Slotkin Family Trust Collection.
