    1904 Half Eagle, PR64 Cameo
    Rare With Cameo Contrast

    1904 $5 PR64 Cameo NGC. CAC. With a mintage of 136 proofs, the 1904 would be a challenging date even if all representatives had survived. However, many examples were destroyed either as unsold or through attrition. The high face value of the coins meant that they often found their way into circulation, and it is estimated that only 50 to 75 proofs are available for present-day collectors. Additionally, the Mint shifted to a brilliant finish for proofs beginning in 1902. Cameo coins such as this from the mid-1900s are thus scarcer than those issued in earlier years (Cameo contrast was the rule rather than the exception prior to 1902). This Choice proof exhibits deep mirroring in the fields and lightly frosted design elements. The Cameo contrast is unquestionable, as is the eye appeal. A few stray contact marks are scattered over each side, but they are minimally distracting. Census: 13 in 64 Cameo, 19 finer (2/15).
