Sharp 1911 Half Eagle, MS65

1911 $5 MS65 PCGS. CAC. Known as a common date in the series, the 1911 is a coin for cherrypickers. Mike Fuljenz writes: "This is among the worst struck dates of this design. The feathers often show weakness and the bonnet may have some blurry areas where the details are not fully brought up. The reverse is better struck but many pieces show weakness on the eagle's left (facing) wing." His comments provide a roadmap for the collector who desires a sharply struck example, a coin such as the O'Neal specimen. Cherrypicking for quality is highly advised.
This vibrant 1911 half eagle is boldly struck, even on the lowermost feathers of the headdress and on the eagle's shoulder feathers. The golden-orange surfaces are fully lustrous with a slightly granular texture, as nearly always, and there are no marks of any consequence on either side. Population: 49 in 65, 1 finer (11/10).
