Description 1862 H10C PR68+ S Cameo NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. With its show-stopping appearance, this beaming jewel 1862 half dime proof offers concentric rainbow iridescence on each side, ranging outward from silver and gold in the centers through ocean-blue, mint, amber, and deep magenta at the extreme rims. Perceptible mint frost on all devices, contrasting against mirrored fields, increases the appeal through cameo contrast. A sharply struck coin -- fully so except for Liberty's head -- and one with incredible eye appeal. From a recorded mintage of 550 proofs for this issue, only 430 were sold, the rest melted, and this is the sole PR68 of any sort certified at either NGC or PCGS (10/13). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $2.25; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $44,062.50 .
