1856-S Half Eagle, Near-Mint
Better No Motto Issue

1856-S $5 AU58 PCGS. CAC. Large S. Most No Motto San Francisco half eagles issues are rare, though the 1856-S has a reasonable mintage of 105,100 pieces. XF examples are surprisingly affordable though elusive. At the near-Mint level, the 1856-S is rare, since there were few if any West Coast gold collectors prior to the 1890s. This peach-gold piece has a good strike and a minimum of abrasions. Luster dominates the margins and motifs. Population: 11 in 58, 3 finer (11/13).
Ex: Orlando FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2006), lot 5212, which realized $3,162.50.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 25UZ, PCGS# 8270)
