    Description

    1880 Half Eagle, PR62 Cameo
    Low Mintage of 36 Proofs

    1880 $5 PR62 Cameo PCGS. The 1880 half eagle business strike were struck in a prodigious quantity exceeding 3.1 million coins, a stark contrast to the tiny proof mintage for the year -- 36 coins. This example, certified PR62 Cameo, displays rich, even reddish color over each side. This piece is obviously a proof from the depth of reflectivity in the fields, but a higher grade is defeated by numerous small contact marks that appear, especially on the obverse. The strike is sharp overall, even though a bit of high-point definition is lacking in the center of each side. Population: 1 in 62 Cameo, 1 finer (10/12).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 3Z2T, PCGS# 88475)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
