Description 1905 50C PR67 Cameo NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The sharply detailed design elements of this magnificent Superb Gem are unusually frosty for a proof of this era, as the Mint switched to an all-brilliant finish in 1902. The frosty design elements contrast boldly with the deeply mirrored fields to create a startling cameo effect. The cameo appearance is further enhanced by the concentric rings of cobalt-blue and lime-green toning that surround the brilliant silver centers. Eye appeal is incredible. Census: 7 in 67 Cameo, 1 finer (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 @ $4.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $12,337.50 . Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions,
