Lot Description
1910 50C PR67 Cameo NGC. Glittering, snow-white brilliance greets the viewer on both sides of this amazing Superb Gem proof. Every feature is free of noteworthy distractions, spots, and hairlines. Attractive mint frost is evident on the central devices, helping to produce the highly desirable cameo effect. This sharply struck proof is an important survivor of an issue with a limited business strike mintage of only 418,000 pieces, the smallest Philadelphia Mint production to this point in the Barber series (although lower figures would come in 1913-1915). A remarkably well preserved specimen. Census: 13 in 67 Cameo, 1 finer (10/10). Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 4290, which realized $12,650. From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection, Part Two.
