Glittering 1899 Half Eagle PR641899 $5 PR64 PCGS. As the 19th century drew to a close, a mere 99 proof Half Eagles were required to meet collector demand in 1899. Consistent with the normal attrition for gold proofs of the era, half or fewer of the original mintage survives today. The present specimen is brightly mirrored with rich yellow-gold coloration and a few wispy hairlines found mainly, but not exclusively on the obverse. An identifying lintmark is seen below and just to the left of star 8. Population: 15 in 64, 3 finer (12/04).
From The Gold Rush Collection.(#8494) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 28D5, PCGS# 8494)
