    Desirable Choice Proof 1874 Half Eagle

    1874 $5 PR64 PCGS. With a stated mintage of merely 20 specimens, the 1874 half eagle ties for the lowest Philadelphia proof production in the Liberty With Motto series, and while its 1875 counterpart is more heralded (largely due to its lower business-strike mintage), Garrett and Guth consider the 1874 proofs to be "just as rare," with "certainly fewer than 10 coins known in all grades." This slightly hazy orange-gold Choice proof offers striking eye appeal and pleasing mirrors that supply mild contrast with the minimally frosted devices. Tiny hairlines in the fields preclude Gem status. Population: 3 in 64, 1 finer (6/08).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 33ZX, PCGS# 8469)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
