Lot Description
1896 50C PR65 Deep Cameo PCGS. Well struck except for the upper right tip of the shield and the nearby eagle's shoulder. Despite traces of lilac and tan color, the contrast between the frosty devices and the mirrored fields is remarkable. The cheek has a few faint slide marks, but the surfaces are otherwise essentially as made. PCGS has encapsulated a mere three examples as Deep Cameo, only one of which is finer. Population: 1 in 65 as Deep Cameo, 1 finer (4/03).
