Description

Condition Scarcity 1855-S Five, AU53

1855-S $5 AU53 PCGS. The 1855-S half eagle had a mintage of just 61,000 pieces. When encountered, it is usually only seen in VF or XF grades. It becomes quite scarce at the AU level and is rare in Mint State. The present AU53 specimen displays peach-orange patina. Considerable luster remains in the areas around the design elements and the interstices. The devices are well defined, including all star centers and eagle feathers. Only Liberty's hair around the ear and the curls on the neck are a touch soft. Scattered light contact marks appear on both sides, none serious. Population: 12 in 53, 25 finer (6/09).
From The Kiawah Collection.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 25UU, PCGS# 8265)
