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. In fact, it would not surprise us to learn that this piece was once offered as a proof. The strike is razor-sharp, and there are just a few nearly microscopic marks. Population: 11 in 67 (2 in 67+), 0 finer (12/12).
