1858 50C PR65 Cameo NGC. The year 1858 was the first in which the Mint produced large quantities of proof coinage to be sold in sets to the general public. The Guide Book lists a production of 300+ proofs. This figure comes from adding 210 pieces struck for proof sets to an unknown number of additional coins that were possibly sold individually. The Wiley-Bugert reference (1993) suggests as many as 400 pieces may have been struck. It is possible that if more than 300 coins were struck, not all were sold to collectors. PCGS estimates a survivorship of just 80 to 100 pieces in all grades, and the combined NGC and PCGS population is just 144 coins, including likely duplication from resubmissions. With many duplicate appearances of individual coins, we have handled a proof 1858 half dollar on only 84 occasions, which strongly suggests that the survivorship is much lower than the suggested Guide Book mintage -- likely more in line with the PCGS survival estimate. This Gem Cameo is a special coin, being one of only eight Cameos reported by NGC and PCGS combined with no Ultra or Deep Cameos known. The finest Cameos include this Gem, one other PR65 at PCGS, and a PR66 coin at NGC that is finer (9/18). This piece offers deeply mirrored fields and modest contrast. A hint of light golden toning is barely noticeable. Only the eagle's left (facing) talons show strike weakness.HID05401242017
