    Appealing 1882 Liberty Half Eagle
    PR63 Deep Cameo

    1882 $5 PR63 Deep Cameo PCGS. From a mintage of only 48 pieces, the 1882 proof half eagle is a rare coin that seldom appears at auction. In The Official Red Book of Auction Records 1994-2003, Jeff Garrett and John Dannreuther list only five auction appearances of the issue in that 10-year period. Walter Breen estimates a surviving population of approximately 15 examples, a figure that corresponds well with current population data.
    The present coin is a delightful specimen, with profound contrast and delicate orange-peel surfaces. The surfaces are attractive, with even reddish-gold color and a few light hairlines in the fields. One shallow scratch in the obverse field limits the grade. Population: 2 in 63 Deep Cameo, 4 finer (1/09).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 28CK, PCGS# 98477)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
