Description

    1876 Half Eagle, PR63 Cameo
    Exceptional Quality, Gold CAC Label

    1876 $5 PR63 Cameo NGC. Gold CAC. The 1876 proof half eagle is a significant rarity in all grades. Only 45 examples were struck, and it is doubtful if more than about 15 to 20 still exist, two of which are housed in museum collections. The combined NGC and PCGS population reports indicate a survival of 25 coins, but this number is undoubtedly inflated by resubmissions. Our archives show only eight previous offerings of this proof issue in the past decade, three of which are reappearances of the same coin.

    This piece is boldly struck and deeply contrasted, with warm, honey-gold coloration. Only a few faint hairlines are detected in the fields, warranting the coveted gold CAC label suggesting this piece is undergraded by at least one full point. It ranks as the only PR63 Cameo certified at NGC, with 10 submissions numerically finer (12/14). Only one non-Cameo is certified at that service, a PR58 coin. Housed in a prior generation holder.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 28CD, PCGS# 88471)

    Weight: 8.36 grams
