Description

Choice Mint State 1857 Half Eagle
Sole Finest NGC-Graded Example

1857 $5 MS64 NGC. For many collectors, the idea of 1857-dated Mint State gold coinage begins and ends with the 1857-S double eagles from the S.S. Central America. To a lesser extent, however, the 1857 half eagle also fits the bill, though with a mintage in the high five figures, there is an understandable cap on the number of potential Mint State pieces. This near-Gem, the single-finest NGC-certified example of the issue (11/11) with just a few PCGS-graded peers, has deeply incised detail with swirling, shimmery luster that is as much orange as yellow. Carefully preserved and beautiful.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25V2, PCGS# 8271)
