    1893 Choice Proof Half Eagle

    1893 PR 64. In spite of the commonness of business strikes of this year, proofs are very rarely seen. In fact, this is the first proof 1893 we have seen in at least five years. Only 77 pieces were produced, but today no more than a couple of dozen are possibly extant in all grades. This coin has rich golden color overall. The fields show an illimitable depth of reflectivity with moderately contrasting cameoed devices. There are a few minor hairlines mostly on the obverse, but these hardly detract from the coin's pleasing appearance. Of the greatest importance to advanced gold collectors. (NGC ID# 28CX, PCGS# 8488)
