    Choice Cameo Proof 1899 Half Eagle

    1899 $5 PR64 Cameo NGC. A nicely preserved tan-gold near-Gem that has good contrast between the devices and the reflective fields. A wire rim (as made) is noted on both sides, a testament to the effort of the Philadelphia Mint to bring up every intricate detail of the design. Just 99 proofs were issued, less than half of the proof production of the 1900 Half Eagle, which was 230 pieces. As of (2/04), NGC has certified a mere 23 examples, many of which undoubtedly reflect resubmissions.(#88494) (NGC ID# 3YDG, PCGS# 88494)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
