1875 $5 PCGS Proof 65 DCAM

DLRC #: 1393782 // PCGS #: 98470

The finest known example of this rare Proof Half Eagle. From a mintage of just 20 pieces, this piece from the famous Trompeter Proof Gold Collection is virtually flawless. Graded originally as a Proof 66 Ultra Cameo, this piece would likely obtain the grade once again, alas it truly doesn't matter as the coin is phenomenal. These rarely trade hands, but the PCGS Price Guide value of $275,000 is indicative of its rarity.
