Description:
Gem Cameo Proof 1889 Liberty Half eagle
1889 $5 PR65 Cameo NGC. Half Eagle production at the Philadelphia mint fell to just 7,565 pieces in 1889, and neither the San Francisco nor Carson City mints delivered any coins. Forty five of the coins produced here were proofs, and survivors are rarer than most of the other proof Liberty Half Eagles from the 1880s, as well as all of those from the 1890s. Breen (1988) states that only 20 proofs of this date are extant, and they are identifiable by a low date that slants up slightly to the right.
This is a lovely, yellow-gold example with deeply mirrored fields. The devices are just frosty enough to warrant a Cameo designation, and every feature is fully defined. The eye appeal is nothing short of breathtaking. A couple of tiny contact marks are noted between stars 12 and 13 in the field. Population: 3 in 65 Cameo, none are finer (10/04).(#88484) (Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 28CT, PCGS# 88484)
