    1906 Five Dollar Liberty, PR65 Cameo
    Only 85 Proofs Produced

    1906 $5 PR65 Cameo NGC. After 1900 the mintage for proof Liberty half eagles only drops below 100 pieces twice, in 1906 and 1907. Using the conventional rule-of-thumb of a 50% survival rate, that would indicate that somewhere around 40-45 piece still exist out of the mintage of 85 proofs for this year. However, CoinFacts gives an estimate of 60-75 proofs that are believed known. This piece is among the finer examples, especially those with cameo contrast. Only 20 combined grading events have been recorded for higher-graded pieces at both services (2/18). A mere three non-Cameo pieces have been certified finer by both NGC and PCGS, and only one Ultra Cameo has been graded (by NGC). This is a bright, deeply mirrored example that shows medium golden-rose color and stark contrast between the frosted devices and highly reflective fields. Census: 3 in 65 Cameo, 12 finer (2/18).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 28DC, PCGS# 88501)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
