Borderline Uncirculated 1832 13 Stars Half Eagle

1832 $5 13 Stars AU58 NGC. Breen-6495, B. 2-A, Miller-164, High R.5. As a date, the 1832 is a noteworthy rarity in this very rare series. While 157,487 pieces were produced, very few coins survived the meltings of the 1830s. While the 12 Stars variety is extremely rare, the 13 Stars variety appears every couple of years at auction where it is nearly always the subject of fierce bidding activity. This flashy example has sunrise-gold centers with wisps of original deeper peach-gold hues along the borders. The eagle's left (facing) wing is not fully struck, but the devices are generally crisp and the absence of relevant abrasions contributes further to the already considerable eye appeal. Opportunities to obtain a problem-free 1832 Half Eagle are infrequent, and an impressive yet affordable near-Mint example such as the present coin may not appear again at auction for some time.
From The Paulsboro Collection, Part Three.(#8156) (Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# BFYG, PCGS# 8156)
