    1906 Half Eagle, PR64
    Above-Average Quality

    1906 $5 PR64 PCGS. In David Akers' reference on the half eagle denomination from 1979, he simply stated "Proofs are rare." Succinct but true. To elaborate a bit, only 85 pieces were struck. Of that original, small output probably a little more than half are extant today. Quite a number have been graded lower, including several impaired proofs, and the average grade of all certified proofs is less than 62. This is a splendid, deeply mirrored example that has rich reddish-golden color over both sides. There are no noticeable contact marks evident on the obverse or reverse. Population: 12 in 64 (2 in 64+), 9 finer (3/13).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 28DC, PCGS# 8501)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
