    Significant 1887 Proof 62 Liberty Half Eagle

    1887 $5 PR62 PCGS. The 1887 is the only date in the Coronet series of Half Eagles where all coins were struck strictly as proofs. A mere 87 pieces were produced and of that number, perhaps as many as 30 survive today. Quite a few are impaired or circulated. In fact, this is the first non-impaired example we have offered in some time. This is a beautiful coin for the assigned grade that is a solid PR62. The fields are unfathomably deep and appear "black" against the subtle mint frost on the devices. The rich orange-gold surfaces show evidence of hairlines and small handling marks which, of course, account for the assigned grade. A significant coin for the dated gold collector. Population: 1 in 62, 6 finer (3/04).(#8482) (Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 28CR, PCGS# 8482)

    Weight: 8.36 grams
