Owner Comments:

The 1904 Proof Half Centavo had a mintage of 1,355. Despite its relatively high mintage compared to other years in this series proof 1904 Half Centavos in this grade are much rarer than the mintage figures would suggest. PCGS Coin Facts lists the "Relative Rarity by Type" for 1904 Half Centavos in PR65RB or above as the rarest in the series and assigns it a grade rarity of R-8.5. Of the five years that proof Half Centavos were produced 1904 is the only year that no specimens have been graded PF67 by any of the major grading services. Not only is PF66 the Top Grade for this year but the total number of available specimens in this grade is extremely small. The Combined PCGS/NGC Population for 1904 Half Centavos in PF66 is only 3 PF66BN, 4 PF66RB, and 3 PF66RD.

The obverse of this rareTop Pop specimen is a beautiful uniform Dark Cherry Red. The reverse is 90% Red with Dark Cherry Red periphery toning. A truly beautiful coin!
