Lot Description
1914 50C PR65 Cameo PCGS. Collector demand for proof coins was at a low ebb in 1914, and only 380 proof Barber half dollars were struck. Examples with Cameo contrast are rarely encountered, but this delightful Gem shows considerable mint frost on the sharply detailed design elements, and the contrast with the deeply mirrored fields is undeniable. A few hints of golden-tan toning enliven the surfaces. Population: 2 in 65 Cameo, 4 finer (4/12).
