    1901 Liberty Half Eagle, PR66 Cameo
    Ex: Trompeter

    1901 $5 PR66 Cameo NGC. CAC. Ex: Trompeter. Mintage of proof half eagles was sharply reduced in 1901, after the series-high mintage of the year before. Still, it is unlikely that collector interest was high enough to absorb all of the 140 pieces struck that year. Some coins undoubtedly went unsold and were subsequently melted. Probably no more than 50-60 examples survive in all grades today.

    This spectacular Premium Gem exhibits razor-sharp definition on all design elements and deeply mirrored fields that contrast boldly with the frosty devices. Some doubling is evident on the date and stars. The date is positioned low and a small tine extends from the left base of E in WE. The yellow and greenish-gold surfaces show no mentionable distractions and eye appeal is terrific. Census: 4 in 66 Cameo, 3 finer (5/15).
    Ex: Ed Trompeter Collection; Heritage Auctions, circa 1998; private collection.
