David Hall: The incredible coin graded SP67 by PCGS is the only 1792 half disme to be called a "specimen" strike by PCGS. The first actual proof coins struck by the U.S. Mint were struck in 1820. For a small handful of coins struck before 1820 that are so exceptional they resemble proofs, PCGS uses the "SP" designation. And we refer to these coins as "specimens" or "special strikes." The SP67 1792 half disme has amazing surfaces and the strike is more full in terms of detail than on any other example of this issue I have seen.
