Item Description:
From a scant mintage of just 144 coins, this matte proof half eagle is an important rarity in the US gold catalog. The matte proof finish was originally quite unpopular with collectors at the time of mintage which led to a very small mintage and survivorship of these issues. The example offered here is beautiful with immaculate surfaces display unbroken matte luster and ideal orange-gold coloration.
