Kwangtung. Kuang-hsu silver Specimen Trial 3 Mace and 6-1/2 Candareens (50 Cents) ND (1889) SP67 NGC, KM-Y197, L&M-124 (124A?), Kann-17. Another example of these fantastic Heaton mint Specimen trial issues. The obverse is fully mirrored prooflike, while the reverse, although quite reflective, has a superb satiny appearance. The devices are fully struck with no noticeable imperfections. a slight very light russet patina covers nost of the coin and the appearance is superb. As with the two previous issues, only a very few pieces are known and this piece is the finest certified by NGC and PCGS combined.
