    Gorgeous 1891 Gem Ultra Cameo Five Dollar

    1891 $5 PR65 Ultra Cameo NGC. The reported mintage of 1891 half eagles in proof format is 53 pieces. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth (2006) estimate about 20 or so examples in all grades. Walter Breen (1989) says they are "Extremely Rare, seldom offered." NGC and PCGS have seen a total of 45 coins, including Cameos and Ultra/Deep Cameos; resubmissions undoubtedly account for a good number of the certified population.
    This Gem Ultra Cameo yields a gorgeous gold-on-black appearance, and a solid strike delivers sharp delineation to the frosty design features, enhancing even more the field-motif contrast and the coin's eye appeal. Close inspection with a loupe reveals some light obverse roller marks, and an occasional faint hairline interspersed with die polish lines in the fields on each side.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 28CV, PCGS# 98486)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
