1902 $5 Liberty. NGC graded Proof 66 Cameo. A nice untoned example. Only 162 Proofs struck. If one were looking for a heroic coin to add to a set of rare United States gold, this 1902 Liberty half eagle would stand in the front echelon of those in contention. It is anchored by razor-sharp detail, glowing-fresh mirror fields, strong cameo contrast (unusual, for the typical 1902 is struck from "all brilliant" dies), and best of all, superlative condition. Just as a good stage number requires an actor who can sing, dance, be funny, and carry a love scene with believability, so too a pedigreed coin requires certain virtues that this sterling example displays in profusion! Pop 4; None finer at NGC. (PCGS # 8497) .
Estimated Value $32,000 - 35,000.
Ohringer Family Trust Holdings.

Realized $36,800
