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# 2800, PCGS# 8533)
