Description:
Premium Gem Proof 1913 Five Dollar
1913 $5 PR66 NGC. Of the 99 proofs struck in 1913 it is believed that somewhere in the range of 30-45 coins may actually exist today, even though some authorities report that only two dozen examples are extant. The 1913 continues the same matte or sandblast finish of proofing with the surface texture of this piece virtually identical to that seen on coins dated 1912. The surfaces of this piece have a markedly different color from the previous year, however, with predominately soft green-gold color, this being subtly contrasted with reddish-rose as the coin turns under a light. After close scrutiny, we have finally found why this breathtaking coin did not grade even higher. When tilted just so, there is a short mark visible on the Indian's cheek. This is a minute flaw, however, and we seriously doubt it can be observed by the unaided eye, but we do feel obliged to point them out for the sake of accuracy. Needless to say, the eye appeal of this magnificent coin is unaffected by these trivial concerns. Population: 18 in 66, 8 finer (1/05).(#8544) (Registry values: N7079) (PCGS# 8544)
