1907 $5 Liberty. NGC graded Proof 66 Cameo. A glittering Gem Proof. Only 92 Proofs minted. Let us not blame Fate for leaving numismatics so few top-quality Cameo Proof gold pieces. It was written the day this coin was made that there would be few survivors, let alone a coin as spectacular in its features at this one is! Whichever pressman struck it on the Mint's special medal press (where all Proof gold coins are struck, to insure proper die pressure), he followed his trade nobly. We present what can only be described as one of the top six coins certified by the grading service. Fresh-as-a-morning crispness leaps to the viewer's eye of nearly pristine watery fields supporting just as bold frosted devices. Something for the connoisseur. Pop 6; 5 finer; 1 in 66 Star; 3 in 67; 1 in 67 Star. (PCGS # 8502) .
Estimated Value $35,000 - 40,000.
Ohringer Family Trust Holdings.
