1892 Columbian Half Dollar. NGC graded MS-65. One of those sleeper dates in gem. When these were struck for the Columbian Exposition in Chicago many visitors to the fair took home a couple of these as souvenirs. Many were eventually spent and circulated along with regular half dollars at the time of issue. This one somehow survived in gem condition, still untoned and boasting the mint-fresh luster that gives the coin great eye-appeal. Scarce in this grade.

Realized $529
