Description:
Gem Proof 1905 Eagle
1905 PR 65 NGC. Ex: Trompeter. A rare date as a proof with only 86 pieces struck. Of that number, Akers estimates that perhaps only 25-30 still exist while Breen states that some 30-35 may still be extant. He considers the 1905 "very rare," more so than the issues of 1900, 1902, and 1904, and on par with the 1903. High grade examples are especially elusive.
This is a very attractive piece that shows no field-to-device contrast which is quite normal for the no-contrast proofs struck during most of the early 1900s. Deeply reflective mirrored pools of reflectivity are seen in the fields and there are only the slightest, wispy hairlines on either side. For identification purposes, a tiny lintmark is seen to the left of the 6th star. This is the second finest example NGC has certified to date (10/98). (NGC ID# 28GC, PCGS# 8845)
