Description

NGC 1912 PR 66. A superb gem proof. It is really quite extraordinary that we should have two examples of this rare matte proof half eagle in the same auction, and the appearance of this second piece does not diminish the absolute or condition rarity of this issue. The fine matte surfaces sparkle with myriad tiny granular facets and the coin overall has a lovely green-gold color. When examined closely with a magnifier, the surfaces reveal a couple of barely noticeable field marks on the upper reverse and a thin scratch from star 7 to the headdress. However, there are no shiny spots on the highpoints of the design elements and the coin has a strong visual impact on the viewer, we only mention the above defects for the sake of accuracy, not because they are visually distracting. This is the only Proof-66 certified by NGC and none are finer according to the April Census Report. (PCGS# 8543)
