Description:
Seemingly Perfect PR67 1908 Half Eagle
1908 $5 PR67 NGC. According to Charles E. Green (1936) only 167 proofs were made of this first year of the Pratt Indian head design. There is evidence that not all the 167 pieces were distributed, and some, in fact, were melted on January 2, 1909 after 100 gold proof sets were assembled. Today, despite a higher mintage, the 1908 does not appear to be significantly more available than other dates of matte proof fives. We estimate that perhaps 40-55 pieces may still be extant in all grades. This piece has unbelievably smooth, even, matte surfaces. There are no shiny spots, contact marks, hairlines, or any other detracting post-striking impairments on either side. Not nearly as green tinted as many 1908 fives, the overall coloration on this piece is more of an even reddish-golden. The only identifying mark on either side of this spectacular coin that might (possibly) be used for pedigree purposes is a tiny speck of grease that was struck into the coin at 3 o'clock near the reverse rim above the second T in TRUST. Exceptional quality and eye appeal. Population: 6 in 67, 1 finer (11/03).(#8539) (Registry values: P1, N38000) (PCGS# 8539)
