Lot Description
1893 50C Columbian MS67 PCGS. CAC. Wafts of aquamarine and lavender mix with the light gold and silver-gray toning that envelops the obverse, while the reverse shows a lovely ring of purple and electric blue around a medium-gray center. The fields are intensely prooflike, and this piece was likely struck soon after the initial run of just over 100 proofs. The strike is razor-sharp, and there are just a few nearly microscopic marks. Population: 6 in 67, 0 finer (6/09). From The Louis Bassano Collection of U.S. Commemoratives.
