Attractive Choice Cameo Proof 1899 Half Eagle1899 $5 PR64 Cameo PCGS. The 1899 proof half eagle has a substantial survival rate from its original mintage of 99 specimens. Garrett and Guth note that " ... there are still around 35 to 40 coins known in all grades. All Proof Liberty half eagles are quite rare, and the 1899 issue is popular as the last issue from the 1800s."
This lovely near-Gem offers delightful contrast between the deep yellow-orange fields and the slightly lighter, delicately frosted devices. This boldly impressed coin shows only a few isolated hairlines and points of contact, though these are sufficient to preclude a finer designation. Still, a visually appealing and comparatively high-end survivor. Population: 2 in 64 Cameo, 1 finer (2/08).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 3YDG, PCGS# 88494)
Weight: 8.36 grams
