Sale 65

Lot 2044

1890. PCGS graded Proof 65 Deep Cameo. Lovely shades of rich golden toning. Only 88 Proofs struck. Outstanding cameo contrast on a Gem Proof, with mile high frost on Liberty surrounded by ocean deep mirror fields. The surfaces are outstanding, and show no signs of handling to distract the eye. Struck with the familiar egg shell crackle finish in the fields, often called "orange peel", the fields show texture yet are perfectly flat in appearance. This must have been quite a marvel to see the process that accomplished this effect. If you have ever wanted to own a first-class Gem Proof gold coin, then this 1890 Liberty $5 is a perfect selection. Buy it to help you spruce up your rare coin portfolio! Pop 1; none finer (PCGS # 98485) .
Estimated Value $23,000 - 25,000.

Realized $31,050
