    Cameo PR 65 1906 Double Eagle--The Finest Certified By NGC

    1906 PR 65 Cameo NGC. Only 94 proofs were struck in this year and many were either melted, damaged, or placed into circulation over the years, leaving very few available today for collectors. This piece was not struck in the no-contrast method of proofing used in the Mint just after the turn of the century, and presents a modest, yet attractive cameo contrast between the fields and devices. Lightly hairlined, the surfaces have a lovely yellow-orange color. The only defects worthy of mention are on the reverse where there is one diagonal mark across the horizontal shield lines and another, shorter one across two of the vertical stripes. An exciting, high quality proof twenty for the advanced collector or investor. From the Green Mountain Collection. Population: 1 in 65, none are finer (4/98). (NGC ID# 26EU, PCGS# 9122)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
