Description & Analysis

With a stated mintage of merely 20 specimens, the 1874 half eagle ties for the lowest Philadelphia proof production in the Liberty With Motto series, and while its 1875 counterpart is more heralded (largely due to its lower business-strike mintage), Garrett and Guth consider the 1874 proofs to be 'just as rare,' with 'certainly fewer than 10 coins known in all grades.'
