Coin of the Week May 5 2019

The Proof 1876 Half Eagle is one of the most popular reconstruction era (1865-1877) issues known with an ultra-low mintage of just 45 coins. It is made even more popular by the scarcity of its business strike counterpart. At just 1,477 coins made for commerce the date has long held the appeal of world class collectors across the globe. Of course, Proof gold has long been numismatic caviar for collectors with a knack for aesthetics and rarity. The likes of Eliasberg, Trompeter and Bass saw these masterpieces as exceptional values in their day. A Gem example hasn’t been on the market in years. Demand has only increased for the date. One of a kind. Price on request.
