    1876 Half Eagle, PR58
    Only 45 Proofs Struck

    1876 $5 PR58 NGC. A mintage of only 45 proof half eagles in 1876 was actually rather substantial for the period, as the previous two years saw production totals of only 20 coins each. Still, Garrett and Guth estimate just 15 to 20 examples of the 1876 issue survive in all grades (two of which are housed in museums), and go on to suggest that "The population data of certified examples are grossly exaggerated by resubmissions." This honey-golden piece is the only representative certified below the PR62 grade level, and is a rare opportunity for the budget-minded proof gold collector. Light high-point friction accounts for the grade, though the deeply reflective fields are plain at all angles, and crisp design elements confirm this coin's proof status. Given the rarity and high market value of the business strike issues of this year, this attractive proof may prove to be a shrewd alternative for the date collector.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 33ZY, PCGS# 8471)
