50C 1865 PCGS PR67+
No question, this is one of the greatest Civil War era Proof Half Dollars in existence! We cannot imagine a finer one existing especially since it took PCGS 30 years to find and grade this one! The quality is borderline PR68 for sure (it did reside in an old NGC PR68 holder). The mirrors are crazy deep and beam from all over. The mirrors are also ultra clean, have amazing clarity, and are boldly reflective. They look like a freshly formed sheet of ice. Both sides are bathed in a moderate mix of totally original pale navy/plum/olive/pale violet/gold colors that swirl all over. Miss Liberty and the details are thickly frosted and have crisp full strikes. The eye appeal is fabulous! ONLY 500 pieces were ever minted. PCGS 1, NGC 0, CAC 1. NO PCGS CAC regular PR67 (let alone a +) has ever been sold at auction. If you are building a SUPERB GEM PR Half or ever a Type set, this coin is a “must buy”. Or, if you love Civil War coins or want something special to put away-this is your coin!
