    Gem Proof 1900 Eagle

    1900 PR 65 Cameo NGC. Ex: Trompeter. With a similar scenario to the 1900 proof half eagle, the Mint struck 120 proof tens, a record high for the series. However, we estimate only about a third of these remain today. In fact, this is only the second example we have offered for sale at auction in recent years. Struck in deep yellow gold, the field-to-device contrast and cameo effect is unmistakable. For pedigree purposes, there is a small planchet flake under Liberty's chin, and a barely discernable luster graze on her cheek. Although this is not the finest graded specimen, it would be hard to imagine the quality needed to surpass the "look" of this gem coin. Population: 1 in PR 65, 4 finer (11/98). (NGC ID# 28G7, PCGS# 8840)
