Victoria 5 Cents 1880-H, Reverse 3, KM2, MS65 PCGS. With a mintage of 3 million coins, the 1880-H ranks as an available date suitable for type collectors. However, PCGS has only certified four examples as MS65 with none finer (7/09), so this piece is the best available quality for the date and will appeal as much to specialists as type collectors. It is far finer than the Norweb Collection MS62 coin and the Dominion Collection MS63 example. It is also finer than the Pittman-Wellington coin, a MS64, and finer than the Belzberg MS64 example. The Belzberg Collection also had a Specimen 65 coin. This is the first MS65 we have ever offered, a landmark opportunity for the advanced collector. Both sides of this boldly defined Gem have satiny luster beneath grayish-gold toning with iridescent accents on each side. The surfaces are remarkably well preserved even for a MS65, with trivial abrasions only visible under magnification.
