    1907 Half Eagle, PR66 Cameo
    Final Liberty Head Proof
    Ex: Trompeter

    1907 $5 PR66 Cameo NGC. CAC. A number of business-strike Liberty half eagles were produced in 1908, but none were struck in proof format. As the final proof date of the series, the 1907 Liberty half eagle is always in demand. Only 92 examples were struck and Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth suspect no more than 30-35 specimens are extant in all grades. A number of coins are known in impaired condition and at least four examples are included in institutional collections. Specimens with cameo contrast are seldom encountered and none have been certified with Deep or Ultra Cameo designations (5/15).

    The present coin is a delightful Premium Gem with sharply detailed design elements that display enough mint frost to provide modest cameo contrast with the deeply reflective fields. The date is positioned low and to the left and some recutting shows on the serif of the 1. The light yellow and greenish-gold surfaces are impeccably preserved and eye appeal is on the same level as the outstanding technical quality. Census: 7 in 66 Cameo, 4 finer (5/15).
