Lot Description
1912 50C PR68 Cameo PCGS. In 1912, the mintage of Proof half dollars exceeded that of the previous year by just 18 coins, with exactly 700 examples minted. The majority of those were mishandled, and there seems to be little doubt that some of the coins were actually spent. All of these factors influence the surviving population, and few high quality coins exist today. This amazing and full brilliant Proof example is a Superb Gem with exceptional aesthetic appeal. The surfaces are nearly perfect. This is also on the verge of qualifying as a Deep Cameo Proof. PCGS has never certified a Deep Cameo example of this issue. In fact, this service has only graded six examples with Cameo contrast, as seen here. This amazing and super Gem is the finest possible coin the connoisseur could possibly hope for. It is a coin not only for the advanced date collector or the collector of coins by design type, but it is also for the numismatist who simply enjoys objects of extreme beauty. Population: 1 in 68, 0 finer (1/05). From the Bruce Scher #1 All-Time PCGS Registry Set.
