Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint only struck 77 proof gold half eagles in 1893. There have been quite a few economic crises since then, so it is estimated that a majority of those struck have been lost. NGC has graded less than 20 in all grades, with most examples earning a cameo or ultra cameo designation, and grades ranging from PF61 to PF68. (9/2016)
