HONG KONG. 5 Cents, 1874-H. Heaton Mint. Victoria. NGC MS-69.KM-5; Mars-C8. Out of the original mintage of 280,000 specimens, this incredible survivor stands with just one other example as the finest known--a population of a scant two at NGC and none at this level seen at PCGS. Exceptionally vibrant and lustrous, this shimmering piece offers a rather alluring iridescence highlighted by some pull away toning around the legends. For the connoisseur of Hong Kong issues, it should go without saying that this rather beautiful specimen would serve as a crown jewel and features quality that is seemingly impossible to improve upon.
