Description:
PCGS 1911 PR 67. With the 1911 issue, the matte finish was resumed as in 1908. However, the finish this year differs from the PCGS Proof 66 1908 seen several lots above, with a slightly finer texture to the granules. The mintage for proofs was 139 pieces, and once again, the number of available specimens is far less than one might believe. It has been reported that perhaps only two dozen proofs still exist, but we believe the number to be closer to 40-45 pieces.
Of the few remaining proofs from this year, this is one of the finest pieces known. Only 3 coins have been so graded as of 6/94 (all by PCGS). This is a truly remarkable specimen. The closest examination with strong magnification has failed to reveal even the smallest imperfection--no contact marks, shiny spots, or blemishes of any kind. The coin is "as struck"--a perfect, flawless proof at the pinnacle of perfection. In the recesses there is a faint bit of rose patina while the raised portions of the design display a light olive tone. An outstanding half eagle and a rare opportunity to acquire a perfect matte proof. (PCGS# 8542)
