Description

Near-Mint 1929 Half Eagle
Last of the Circulating Fives

1929 $5 AU58 NGC. That a majority of the 1929 fives were melted in the 1930s is an unspoken assumption among many numismatists; otherwise, the small pool of survivors makes little sense. The 1929 fives were a last gasp for the denomination, the first half eagles struck since 1916 and the last made until 1986. This straw-gold example remains strongly lustrous with wheat and pink accents. Minor rub crosses the high points, indicative of either brief circulation or a short time spent as a pocket-piece. An appealing coin that would make a great finisher to an otherwise Mint State set.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 28E2, PCGS# 8533)

The way you grouped lots, photographed, and presented the material was too notch. I was impressed that you took the time to attribute coins to the Krause reference as their "plate coin" and that many of your descriptions included pertinent facts and infor
