Full, sharp strike front and back, an attribute that is difficult to find with this type. I reject 80% of this type on strike alone. Super clean surfaces and finished with full luster on even silvery blue patina overall. Better than most graded MS65.
A basically flawless original with a needle sharp strike on both sides. Light silvery patina overall with splashes of golden rose and green. Finished with full luster. Impeccable and worthy of the finest type or date set.
"Highland Collection" Pedigree. A beautiful original. Very sharp strike front and back, with all star and shield lines complete and sharp. Light silvery rose and blue with splashes of light color throughout. Superb, clean surfaces and fully lustrous. A superior type in every respect.
*Henry Hamilton Collection* As with virtually every coin in this collection, this piece has that extra pizazz that sets it apart. Needle sharp strike with flawless, spot free surfaces and attractive light patina.
I have seen and purchased many Highland Collection coins in the past year or so. I don't know who assembled the collection, but they had an exceptional eye for great greats. This piece shows a needle sharp strike witrh flawless reflective surfaces and spot free. Truly superb. Awarde both the "plus" designation from NGC and a CAC sticker.
*Henry Hamilton Collection* Starting with a needle sharp strike on both sides, this light Cameo (not designated) proof shows beautiful pastel rose and golden patina on bright reflective surfaces. Top end eye-appeal.
*Henry Hamilton Collection* Absolutely gorgeous, original CAMEO (not designated) Proof. Light even silvery rose patina on bright, superb surfaces. This coin glows and is in the top 5% of the grade, rivalling most residing in PR67 holders.
*Henry Hamilton Collection* Here is another coin that I have a specific memory of buying because it is so exceptional. Bought this coin the day before set-up day in the lobby of the Long Beach Hyatt, probably about 8 years ago. Just crossed to PCGS from a PF67 NGC / CAC holder, this gorgeous proof is deserving of a “plus” designation IMO. Silvery blue and golden rose patina blend in stunning fashion on this flawless, glowing proof. So much better than 90% of the PR67 Mattes I see. A true original Superb Gem with out-of-park Eye-Appeal…
