Gem $850 New February 10! Exceptional Presentation, Steely-Frosted Luster, Gorgeous Peripheral Toning, What a Type Coin!. This 1893 Barber half is yet another of the recent purchases to secure a JUST BUY IT NOW presentation. The reasons are hopefully obvious from the images. Luster falls into the steely-frosted category while the radiance explodes under angled lighting. Classic copper-gold and sky blue toning leads to a gorgeous presentation on both sides. Strike is hammered with intricately detailed eagle tail feathers and the right claw. Surfaces are unabraded with some light die clashing on the reverse. This lot was not submitted to CAC as I've had little luck for stickering coins with this type of brilliant luster and colorful toning. A fantastic addition as a type coin given the exceptional eye appeal. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder.
