    Brightly Mirrored 1899 Five Dollar, PR63 Cameo

    1899 $5 PR63 Cameo PCGS. A recorded 99 examples of the Liberty Head five dollar proofs were made in 1899, an easy figure to remember. The issue is a popular one, due to its status as the last half eagle issue in the 1800s. Perhaps 35% to 40% survive today. The typical example has an appearance much like the present piece, with deeply mirrored fields and rich, even orange-gold color prevailing throughout. A noticeable orange-peel effect appears on each side. A few light field hairlines account for the grade, but this piece is sharp and offers generous eye appeal. Seldom seen finer with the Cameo designation. Population: 1 in 63 Cameo, 3 finer (10/11).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 3YDG, PCGS# 88494)

    Weight: 8.36 grams
