Gleaming 1906 Half Eagle, PR64 Cameo

1906 $5 PR64 Cameo PCGS. A century has passed since the last proof half eagles of the Gobrecht design left the Philadelphia Mint, an anniversary that might bring renewed interest to this series, lengthy and challenging, yet immensely rewarding. The last two years, 1906 and 1907, saw decreased mintages that render them, in the words of Garrett and Guth (2006), " ... a bit more difficult to locate than some of the earlier issues."
In addition, with the change in Mint procedures for preparing proof dies, few coins show the level of contrast displayed by this marvelous Choice specimen. The strike is decisive, and though the level of frost on the devices is mild, the gleaming fields and portrait show undeniable contrast. A captivating exemplar. Population: 2 in 64 Cameo, 6 finer (11/07).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 28DC, PCGS# 88501)
