Description

Rare 1855-O Half Eagle, AU53

1855-O $5 AU53 NGC. With a mintage of only 11,000 pieces (the fourth lowest in the Half Eagle series), the 1855-O is a very popular issue with collectors. It is seldom located in AU or mint condition and only 5-6 Almost Uncirculated pieces believed known. This is a well struck example, as are most '55-O Fives, and the surfaces are bright with just a touch of reddish patina over the basic green-gold colored planchet. Numerous small abrasions are peppered over each side, but the only one worthy of mention is a small mark above the eagle's head.
From the Ashland City Collection. (NGC ID# 25UT, PCGS# 8264)
