1901 Five Dollar, PR66+ Deep Cameo
1901 $5 PR66+ Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. JD-1, R.4. Ex: Simpson.
A remarkable Liberty half eagle proof type coin. The strike is
full, the surfaces are practically pristine, and the radiant
devices exhibit blatant contrast with the mirrored fields. It is
easy to see why this Premium Gem is single finest certified by
PCGS. The high-grade status is confirmed by CAC, and the coin is
one of only seven proof 1901 fives (as of 11/20) to secure the
coveted "green bean." Only 140 proofs were produced, and several
were eventually spent, presumably during economic hard times. PCGS
has graded five pieces as PR55 and another three as PR58. NGC has
also certified three coins as PR58. But the present lot is
virtually as made, and would be a highlight of any 20th century
proof type set.
