Lot Description
1898 50C PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC. A total of 735 half dollars was produced in proof format in 1898. A review of NGC and PCGS population data indicates that approximately 400 non-Cameo examples have been certified, along with 121 Cameos, and fewer than 30 Ultra/Deep Cameos. Of course, a number of these coins are likely resubmissions. This magnificent Superb Gem Ultra Cameo specimen displays a white-on-black appearance, as the frosted motifs seems to be suspended above the deep watery fields. The design features are fully struck on each side. The shimmering, untoned surfaces are impeccably preserved. Census: 6 in 67 Ultra Cameo, 4 finer (11/10). From The Smithfield Collection.
