Description

    Outstanding PR66 Cameo 1900 Five Dollar

    1900 $5 PR66 Cameo NGC. CAC. Rarely seen in such splendid condition combined with cameo contrast. Only 230 proofs were struck of this popular turn-of-the-century date. Of that number, probably no more than 100-110 examples are known today as recognizable proofs. Of those survivors approximately a third are non-Cameos, a third Cameo coins, and a third Deep Cameos. The reason for the higher percentage of contrasted proofs is 1900 was the last year before the Mint began to make a conscious effort to strike all-brilliant proofs. As such, even though this coin is the first from the new 20th century, it still retains the manufacturing method for making proofs from the 19th century. Another holdover from the latter part of the 19th century is the orange-peel texture in the fields, a trait that is rarely found on post-1900 proofs.
    The surfaces are noticeably contrasted, as stated, and the color is rich yellow-gold. Close examination reveals no mentionable contact marks on this splendid piece of proof gold. Census: 5 in 66 Cameo, 4 finer (1/08).
