Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint struck a measly total of 99 Liberty gold half eagles in 1899. Many of these were likely lost throughout the turmoil in the following few decades, making this quite a hard-to-find date of proof gold eagle. Those that do exist, however, are usually found under gem, but with a cameo contrast.
