Lot Description
1896 50C PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. Since David Lawrence (1991) states that the business strike 1896 is "scarce in all grades," we anticipate significant bidder interest in this wonderfully preserved proof. The method of manufacture is also praiseworthy, both sides displaying mostly sharp, deeply frosted devices and shimmering fields. Untoned in appearance, although we do note a blush or two of pale champagne-tan tinting over the right side of the obverse. A little bit of striking incompleteness at the eagle's right (facing) shoulder is noted for accuracy, however this is typical even on proof issues. Population: 1 in 67 Deep Cameo, none are finer at either service (1/05). From the Bruce Scher #1 All-Time PCGS Registry Set.
