Lot Description
1895 50C PR68 Ultra Cameo NGC. A total of 880 proofs were struck in 1895. This example possesses a strong cameo contrast, in which the frosty devices appear to float upon deeply mirrored, watery fields. The surfaces are nearly untoned, with close inspection revealing just a hint of speckled milky toning in the fields. Indeed, this coin may well satisfy those collectors desiring "white" specimens for their collection. Razor-sharp definition prevails throughout, further enhancing the eye appeal of this piece. The immaculate surfaces are nearly unimprovable, showing no mentionable contact marks or other blemishes. A sure to please coin that is hard to come by in this lofty state of preservation. Census: 2 in 68 Ultra Cameo, 0 finer (9/11).
