    Rare 1882 Cameo Proof Five Dollar, PR65 PCGS

    1882 $5 PR65 Cameo PCGS. While 1882 business strikes are among the most common date in the entire Liberty half eagle series, proofs are very rare, with a miniscule production of only 48 pieces. It is likely that fewer than half of this number are extant today. Our records indicate that there have only been eleven appearances of 1882 proofs (both cameo and non-cameo pieces) at auction since 1978. This piece has a magnificent cameo contrast, in which the frosty design elements appear to float over the deeply mirrored, watery fields. The surfaces sport a deep, orange-gold patination over both obverse and reverse, with an orange-peel effect noticeable on the reverse. The design features are boldly impressed throughout, further enhancing the eye appeal of this gorgeous coin that is virtually devoid of blemishes. Population: 2 in 65, 0 finer (3/04). (#88477) (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 28CK, PCGS# 88477)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
