    Splendid 1907 Liberty Half Eagle PR66 Cameo

    1907 $5 PR66 Cameo PCGS. Only 92 proofs were struck in this final year of production for the long-lived Coronet design. With fewer than half that number most likely extant today, it stands to reason that few could compare in overall eye appeal and technical merit with this lovely coin. Proof Half Eagles from this year can be verified by a bold diagonal die line west of the initial vertical stripe of the shield. After several years of producing proofs with a no-contrast finish, the Mint partially reverted to its pre-1900 method of proofing in 1907 and some pieces struck then actually display mild contrast between the fields and devices, as on this piece. The fields sparkle and the depth of mirrored reflectivity is intense on each side. In looking for an attribution marker, we notice under magnification a tiny planchet flake on Liberty's upper lip. Population: 2 in 66 Cameo, 0 finer (11/04).
