1892 Columbian Half Dollar. PCGS graded Proof 64. Lovely rainbow toning. A satiny frosted mirror Proof with strong fundamental luster and gorgeous toning. Sharply struck on all key design components such as Columbus's hair and the two globes beneath the Santa Maria. The ships, sails, too, billow forth in razor-sharpness uncharacteristic of the far commoner Mint States. Special mention is merited since this is indeed one of the rare Proofs!

Proof strikings are few and far between. Probably no more than a few dozen have been authenticated today, and of these there are not many that have the choice quality combined with the beauty of the coin offered here. We expect a lot of interest and action as this crosses the auction block. Pop 12; 9 finer; 5 in 65; 3 in 66; 1 in 67. (PCGS # 9295) .
Estimated Value $8,000 - 8,500.

Realized $9,200
