    1903 Liberty Head Half Eagle, PR65
    Rare Gem Example, Outstanding Eye Appeal

    1903 $5 PR65 NGC. A nominal mintage of 154 proof Liberty Head half eagles was accomplished in 1903, and the issue is reasonably available in the context of the series. However, any proof Liberty Head half eagle should be considered a rare and valuable coin in the absolute sense. Certainly, examples of the 1903 proof, in Gem condition, are very rare. Currently, NGC has certified four coins in PR65, with three finer, while PCGS has graded only three examples in Gem proof, with a single specimen finer (9/10).
    The present coin is a delightful Gem specimen, with brightly reflective surfaces, and attractive yellow-gold color. As on almost all examples from this time period, the finish does not have cameo contrast. The strike is needle-sharp throughout, and no mentionable distractions are evident. Eye appeal is extraordinary.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 28D9, PCGS# 8498)
