Proof, Deep Cameo. Tied for Finest Known!

For astute collectors the 1898 Proof $5 is one that invokes the question, why? Why does a coin with a mintage of just 75 (the lowest from 1894 to the end of the series) sell for virtually the same number as any other Proof in their respective grades?

This extraordinary Tied for Finest Known example is one of just 3 known by PCGS in this grade! NGC has graded 3 also – with none finer, and we expect at least a resubmission or two in those tabulations.

Proof Gold has been on a wild ride in this market! The best collectors flock to the best examples, and the registry set play makes them all the more alluring to get the absolute finest pieces available – and this one checks all the marks!

A remarkable addition to any world class collection.
