Lot Description
1898 50C PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. Exceptional production standards coupled with an unusually high number of proof sets and singles that were saved in pristine condition accounts for the relatively "large" number of high quality survivors known of this date. This piece, as an example, appears to be perfect. We just see no contact marks on either side. And that is saying quite a lot, since the surfaces are mostly brilliant in the centers, with just a bit of golden peripheral toning on each side. The devices are heavily frosted, and coupled with the deeply reflective fields the result is a coin with Deep Cameo contrast. Population: 2 in 68 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (2/10).
