1875 $5 PCGS Proof 64 CAM

Rare Proof Half Eagle

Coins We Love
Eye Appeal:
Degree of Toning: 1/10

From a mintage of just 20 pieces, this key date is completely underrated due to the rarity of its circulation strike cousin of the same date. Less than 10 pieces (probably fewer than 6-7) are known and this piece exhibits beautiful Cameo mirrors with the slightest mark below the hair on the obverse. The reverse displays hairlines that are acceptable for the grade, but overall this piece is truly a quality example of an underrated, great coin!
