    1894 PR64 Cameo Half Eagle
    One of Few Cameos Certified

    1894 $5 PR64 Cameo NGC. CAC. Only 75 proofs were struck of the 1894 half eagle, and survivors are even rarer than this low mintage suggests with fewer than 40 coins believed extant today. This well mirrored specimen has a few wispy hairlines to the left of the portrait and numerous other die striations across the mirrored fields. There is a diagonal die flaw, actually a streak of unfinished and unpolished area in the planchet, in the area of star 13, an easy identifier. Strong mint frost over the devices results in a noticeable cameo contrast. Census: 7 in 64 Cameo, 3 finer (8/12).
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 30471.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 28CY, PCGS# 88489)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
