    Gem Matte Proof 66 1911 Half Eagle

    1911 $5 PR66 NGC. As with the 1908 proof issue of this design, the mint returned to a dark matte finish for the proof issues of 1911. The lemon-yellow surfaces on this specimen display no faults worthy of mention, and the strike is as sharp as any we have seen for the date or type. Just 139 examples were originally produced, and survivors are more often seen in lower grades than this nearly pristine Proof 66 example. Only a handful of pieces have received a higher grade from either major grading service, and the relatively high figure published by NGC of 20 certified in this grade undoubtedly reflects at least a few repeat submissions of the same coin or coins. Population: 20 in 66, 6 finer (4/04).(#8542) (Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 28E5, PCGS# 8542)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
