1892 $5 Liberty. NGC graded Proof 65 Cameo. Encased in NGC holder 1938632-002. Only 92 proofs issued. A lovely untoned gem. Clearly more than fifty-percent of the original mintage of Proof Half Eagles struck this year remain for modern-day collectors. Compared to others, this handsome gem with its cameo qualities and full glowing surfaces is one of the few almost unimpaired pieces we have had the pleasure to offer. Both sides emphasize the brilliant golden color and under magnification reveal splendid two tone cameo contrast from the frosted devices. A distinguished looking coin for the connoisseur of rare U.S. Proof gold. The next owner, when he tries to describe this piece to his friends and associates will, no doubt, be left speechless by its beauty and overwhelming charm. Pop 2; 1 in 66 Star (PCGS # 88487) .
Estimated Value $25,000 - 30,000.

Realized $28,750
