    Conditionally Rare 1902 Half Eagle PR64 Cameo

    1902 $5 PR64 Cameo PCGS. Sharply struck with unusually deep mirror fields and mildly frosted devices. Neither side reveals any evidence of coin-to-coin contact or improper handling, but a few wispy field hairlines limit the grade. Like all proof Liberty Head half eagles, the 1902 is quite scarce. Although most known examples fall into the PR64 category, according to Guth and Garrett's Encyclopedia of Gold Coins (2006), the 1902 issue is the first of the mostly brilliant proof half eagles, and the devices are not nearly as frosted as those seen on earlier dates. Prohibitively rare at any grade level with the Cameo designation, and none have been seen with Deep Cameo surfaces by either NGC or PCGS. Population: 1 in 64 Cameo, 2 finer (10/06).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 3YDK, PCGS# 88497)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
