50C 1859 PCGS PR66+


Unlike so many other 1859 Proofs we have seen-this coin is a roaring party of color and flash that blows everything else away! Killer deep (and we mean deep) mirrors explode from all over. The mirrors are clean, crystal clear, and certainly have a reflection that nearly blinds you. Both sides are bathed in vivid almost electric original colors. The obverse has purple/violet/pearl green/blue/gold. The reverse has a ring of blue with purple/deep champagne centers. Miss Liberty and the details are thickly frosted and have full stand out strikes. The eye appeal is incredible-especially when you consider it is an 1859! ONLY 800 were minted. PCGS 1, NGC 3, CAC 2. This is the ONLY PR66+. PCGS has graded 2 PR67’s-neither of which is CAC’d. This is NOT your typical 1859. In fact its not your typical no motto. This coin puts on one of the great color shows you will see for an early Proof half. Had it been a Civil War era date, it would be worth $$20,000.00+! If you are building GEM Toned Pr half set or just buy wild color coins, this coin is a “must have”!
