    1913 Two and a Half, PR67
    A Nearly Perfect Matte Proof

    1913 $2 1/2 PR67 NGC. The 1913 had a mintage of 165 proofs, and of that number perhaps 60-75 separate coins are believed known today. The average grade is quite high with the average we show from our auction data being 64.6. The Garrett-Guth average grade is somewhat higher at 65.3. Given that one should find it somewhat easy to locate a high grade (if a 1913 proof can be found), a PR67 such as this is very close to the finest obtainable. Only four PR68 examples have been certified, and this coin is tied with eight other PR67s as second finest (10/10). This immaculate coin has dark, almost khaki-green color. The surfaces are finely faceted with minute granularity from the matte finish. There are no obvious contact marks or shiny spots on either side of this remarkable piece of matte proof gold.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 289M, PCGS# 7962)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
