Description

Finest Known 1859 Half Eagle, MS63 Prooflike

1859 $5 MS63 NGC. The single finest graded example of this scarce Philadelphia Half Eagle, with an impressively low mintage of only 16,814 pieces. Both sides display pinpoint sharpness in all areas and reflective fields that suggest at the very least that it was an early striking. Rose and orange iridescent highlights adorn the peripheral areas of the reverse. The most obvious distraction is a cluster of scuffy abrasions above the eagle's head. Population: 1 in 63, 0 finer (11/02). (NGC ID# 25VB, PCGS# 8280)
