Description & Analysis

The 1834 Classic Head half eagle issue was the first of the new type, as such, the issue is quite popular with collectors and first-year-of-type enthusiasts. But while the issue as a business strike is available for a price in grades well up into the Mint State range, proof examples are incredibly rare.

Prooflike coins are widely available of the 1834 Classic five. They are beautiful coins and well-produced. However, there is a profound difference between a well-produced prooflike and a proof.
