$2.5 1896 PCGS MS67
123 years young and the coin looks great! Some how it missed all the pitfalls of circulation. Can’t imagine a better 1896!
Even using a strong glass all you can see is the fineness of the thickly satiny textured surfaces. The luster is radiant and looks glam. Both sides have a heart pounding totally original mix of gold/pale greenish gold/faint gold. There are NO spots or discolorations (there is a faint line of mint grease on the reverse). Miss Liberty and every detail are frosty and are fully struck. You do not have to look twice to realize the absolute quality this coin has. The eye appeal is amazing!
PCGS 8, NGC 9, CAC 4. No PCGS CAC piece has ever been sold via auction. The current Collectors Universe Value is $11,000.00. We assure you, this piece absolutely ranks in the top 5%-maybe even the is the very best 1896 graded. We are not kidding you when we tell you this coin is hard for us to take off our desks and put away. Its that “freakin” gorgeous!
