    Remarkable Gem Matte Proof 1912 Half Eagle

    1912 $5 PR66 PCGS. This fresh coin is sure to elicit strong bids from discerning specialists. The surfaces display a smooth green-gold appearance that is anything but common for a delicate matte proof gold coin. Under a loupe, one can see thousands of sparkling granules, and the surfaces are devoid of most hairlines and contact marks. The strike is full in all areas, and the eye appeal is superior for this often poorly preserved type. Simply put, this is an amazing Gem example.
    We believe that only 25-40 proof 1912 half eagles are extant from an original mintage of 144 pieces. A few of these coins are impaired, and truly pristine examples are seldom available at any price.
    From The Jerry Doty Collection. (#8543) (NGC ID# 28E6, PCGS# 8543)
