||Virtually Pristine 1895 Proof Half Dollar
Finest Certified for the Issue
1895 Barber Half Dollar. Proof-69 Cameo (NGC).
This is a truly magnificent example of both the type and issue that really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Both sides are virtually perfect, the surfaces silky smooth in appearance with an untoned, bright silver white appearance. Full striking detail and bold field to device contrast further enhance already memorable eye appeal.
The Philadelphia Mint produced 880 Proof half dollars in this, the fourth year of the Barber or Liberty Head series. This is one of the most consistently well produced and preserved issues of the type, a status it shares with the Proof 1896, 1897 and 1898. Even so, previous few survivors are as exquisite as this premium Superb Gem. In fact, it is the single finest certified Proof 1895 known to PCGS and NGC, and one of only seven Barber half dollars of all dates certified at the Proof-69 level by both services combined. It is also the earliest dated Proof-69 certified for the type. A true wonder coin among Proof Barber half dollars, this awe inspiring beauty is sure to see spirited bidding among discerning collectors.
NGC Census: just 1 in any category; 0 finer. The finest example of this issue known to PCGS is certified Proof-68+ Cameo.
