    Description

    PCGS 1913 PR 66. Only 99 proofs were reportedly struck in this year, and of course, far fewer survive today. It is worth noting that when Akers compiled the data for his magnum opus on the half eagle series he only recorded 18 appearances over a 37-year period. The sandblast or matte finish of this coin is undisturbed by even the smallest imperfections and there are no "shiny spots" on either side. The coin has a pronounced olive-green caste--one is tempted to compare it to the 1908 proof issues--but this is a brighter shade of green than seen proofs from that earlier year. An exquisite piece of proof gold and obviously very rare. Population: 7 in 66, only 1 finer.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 28E7, PCGS# 8544)
