Lot Description
1956 50C Type Two PR69 Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. The Type Two design, with strengthened eagle feathers, is found on perhaps 95% of all proofs of this year. The 1956 is known for ultradeep black-on-silver contrast, as this piece ably demonstrates. More than a half-century after its production, this issue has only 39 examples certified PR69 Deep Cameo at PCGS, with none finer (12/12), with the population data not having changed since this piece appeared at auction three years ago. Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2010), lot 2781. From The Atlanta Collection.
