||Republic silver Proof 5 Centavos 1874-A, Paris mint, KM-Y12.1, Proof 65 NGC. An extremely rare Paris mint Proof issue. The strike is flawless and the fields display the satiny, reflective appearance typical of the Paris Mint Proof issues. Full luster shimmers beneath gold and steel-blue toning. This is the only example certified by NGC in Proof. We have seen 2-3 1876-A Venezolanos in Proof over the years, but this is the first of this type, and date, we have seen offered as an obvious Paris mint Proof.
