Lot Description
1892 50C Columbian MS67 PCGS. As the first commemorative half dollar struck, the Columbian holds a special place in the long and historic commemorative series. From the first proof striking that sold for $10,000 in 1892, to the final 1893 business strike, Columbian halves were popularly collected at the time and in the hundred years since. This is a spectacularly toned piece whose central regions are shaded in electric-green and rose-gray colors, gradually giving way to a ring of vivid mint-green and golden-orange iridescence at the rims. Superb luster and exceptional eye appeal overall. Population: 9 in 67, 0 finer (1/05). From the Bruce Scher #1 All-Time PCGS Registry Set.
