    Cameo Select Proof 1899 Half Eagle
    One of 99 Specimens Struck

    1899 $5 PR63 Cameo PCGS. The PCGS Population Report suggests a high survival rate for this issue of just 99 proofs, listing "60 to 75 known." By the strict PCGS Cameo standards, however, just 10 of the 30 coins in the Population Report meet Cameo or Deep Cameo criteria (6/12). This Select specimen is among those pleasingly contrasted pieces, decently frosted on the devices with black-gold glassy mirrors. The arm's-length eye appeal is gorgeous, though close inspection reveals the collected small contact marks and hairlines that account for the designation. A cloudy patch at the lower reverse comes from a holder scuff, not a problem with the coin itself.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 3YDG, PCGS# 88494)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
