Lot Description
1936 50C Albany MS68 PCGS. Both sides display splendid speckled apricot-gold patina that is coveted by specialists for its obvious originality, with splashes of watery rose, glowing emerald-gold, and opalescent lilac accents further enhancing the visual appeal. Intense, bold cartwheel luster underlies the toning but is in no way muted or obscured, and the surfaces are perfectly pristine save for one or two minuscule abrasions on the obverse devices that are virtually undetectable to the unaided eye. A lustrous, well struck, and exquisitely preserved Superb Gem. This is the single finest Albany certified to date by PCGS (6/04). Ex: Portland ANA Signature Sale (Heritage, 3/04), lot 6876, which realized $20,125. From the JFS Collection, the #1 All-Time PCGS Registry Set.
