Fantastic PR64+ 1912 Half Eagle1912 $5 PR64+ PCGS. Garrett and Guth, in the Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins, offer a breakdown of this date's characteristic in proof: "Proofs of this year have a fine sandblast finish, which shows microscopic tiny facets that reflect the light, and are lighter gold in color than the previous matte finish seen on the 1911 and 1908 Proof issues."
That description is a perfect match for this near-Gem specimen, which has light mustard-tan coloration and a gorgeous matte finish. Excellent design detail with only a few tiny disturbances of the delicate matte surface. Astonishingly close to full Gem status. Population: 3 in 64, 24 finer (11/10).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28E6, PCGS# 8543)
Weight: 8.36 grams
