    Cameo Superb Gem 1907 Half Eagle, Tied For Finest Certified

    1907 $5 PR67 Cameo NGC. A needle-sharp Superb Gem with radiant pale gold devices and imposing deeply mirrored fields. Thorough examination under a loupe fails to reveal any remotely noticeable hairlines. A pair of tiny planchet flaws (as made) near the arrowheads are of mint origin and will provide pedigree markers for any future auction appearances of this magnificent specimen. The final year of proof Liberty Half Eagle production, although business strikes of the type were coined in Philadelphia dated 1908. Proofs can be identified by a bold diagonal die line (as made) west of the initial vertical stripe of the shield. As of (7/04), NGC has certified only two 1907 proof Half Eagles as PR67 Cameo, with none finer. NGC has not encapsulated any examples as Ultra Cameo, and among non-Cameos, the finest graded by that service is PR65. Hence, the present piece is tied with one other coin as the finest certified, since PCGS has not graded any at or above the PR67 level.
