*NEW* (Friend Pedigree) Cert. 26813367 In my mind this piece blows away every MS66 Bust Half I have seen. Very sharply struck, superb, virtually mark free surfaces. No “rubby” look to the cheek as is so prevalent with this type and full, glowing luster on silvery-golden-rose patina. A MONSTER Bust Half without the mega-buck price tag.
*NEW* Here is an affordable Bust Half type with the look of a much higher grade. Fully struck front and back with strong hair detail, complete drapery and sharp clasp. Reverse is equally well struck with all design details bold. Virtually free of contact marks and nothing at all distracting. Light silvery patina with some blue at the rims and finished with good luster.
***Small Date, Small Letters. Complete, sharp strike with all design details crisp. Surfaces are distraction free and finished with original even silvery gray toning and full luster. Exceptionally nice for the grade.
A great looking coin that starts with a needle sharp strike on both sides, just a touch of even wear, great surfaces and lovely even medium silvery gray antique toning. As nice as it gets for the grade with awesome eye-appeal.
*NEW* Cert. 82476104 This coin is the Mint State twin of the 1897 Deep Cameo Proof above. Brilliant and fully GEM, this beauty boasts a ring of golden and bright blue circling the peripheries of both sides.
***NEW* Cert. 81875778 Brilliant and flash GEM. Part of a complete 1936 Proof Set. Cent PR66+ PCGS / CAC; Buffalo Nickel PR67+ PCGS / CAC; Mercury Dime PR66 PCGS / CAC; Washington Quarter PR 66 PCGS; Walking Liberty Half PR66 PCGS / CAC. Sold as a set for $30,000.
*NEW* A gorgeous Proof that shows considerable CAMEO devices on both sides contrasting deep, flawless, black fields. Medium cameo on the obverse and no cameo on the sun, so PCGS will not designate this coin “CAMEO”, But strong cameo overall on the reverse devices. Only two Cameo’s of the date have been certified at PCGS, one PR64 CAM and One PR65 CAM. Although none exist, CU Price Guide shows a value of $8500 in PR66 CAMEO and leaves the PR67 CAMEO unvalued. Based on these numbers, this just miss PR67 CAMEO is real value and a joy to behold.
