    Prized Near-Gem Cameo Proof 1904 Half Eagle

    1904 $5 PR64 Cameo PCGS. Most of the 1902-1907 proof gold coinage, for reasons that are undocumented today, was the subject of Mint experimentation that changed from the reflective cameo appearance of earlier years to a "semibrilliant" appearance that generally lacked any field-device contrast. As such, Cameo pieces such as the present half eagle are quite elusive and highly prized by the numismatic cognoscenti. The devices are well frosted and the fields are deeply reflective, producing significant contrast that is apparent even to the most casual observer. The mellow orange-gold surfaces and relative lack of contact make this piece appear high-end for the grade. (Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 28DA, PCGS# 88499)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
