Lot Description
1904 50C PR67 Cameo NGC. This is an unusual coin because of its Cameo contrast, which although considered highly desirable now was thought to be undesirable when the coin was minted. Population figures for both major services combined show that fewer than thirty 1904 halves have received the cameo designation regardless of grade, about six percent of the total, and none have received a Deep or Ultra Cameo designation in any grade. Bright white with just the barest hint of gold color on Liberty's neck and deeply mirrored surfaces devoid of mentionable contact marks. Census: 6 in 67 Cameo, 2 finer (6/08).
