ERROR 1900 $5 Gold Eagle

This is a real treasure. I always pictured it being used on the cover of an Error book or used in a magazine. These aren't the best photos....just re-using some old shots I took a couple years ago. Six-figures worth of coins have passed through my hands in the last 5 years, but this coin has always remained my personal favorite..... and it hurts to part with it, but other obligations dictate this piece must be sold.

If you clicked on this post, you're probably educated enough to know what it is....1900 $5 Half Eagle with a HUGE lamination error. It comes in a custom lucite holder with a gold lettered description of the coin....which also cost a pretty penny.
Delivered to your door, $700 via Paypal (add 3% if not using the gift method).

And yes, the odd pink clip on the reverse rim is just my finger holding it.

    Very cool coin! Wonder if it would be worth more graded though?

    I almost like the holder more than the coin as someone paid by the letter to add all the hype.

    They won't slab peel laminations. Don't want chucks to break off during slabbing

    PCGS won't, but NGC will. I had a nice $2 1/2 Indian that was turned down by PCGS but I got it graded by NGC.

    Received it today. Every bit as nice as advertised. The pictures don't do it justice.

    Thanks!
