1899 $5 Liberty. PCGS graded Proof 64 Deep Cameo PQ. CAC Approved. A hint of light golden toning. 99 proofs struck. Just recently added to the PCGS Population Report. A strikingly beautiful, absolutely splendid Gem Proof 1899 Half Eagle that was saved in very limited numbers, many of which were mishandled in the intervening years. The coin has warm patina throughout the main areas of the fields and devices, toning that takes many decades to develop. There is much here that differentiates this choice Proof 64 from run-of-the-mill Proofs, and the remarkable quality and appearance give it special allure. A coin ringing with words like "beautiful," "sparkling," and "virtually second to none." Which segues nicely into the numbers provided by the grading service: Pop 1; 2 finer in 66. (PCGS # 98494) .
Estimated Value $12,000 - 14,000.
Ohringer Family Trust Holdings.

Realized $17,825
