Description

Lustrous MS64 1861 Half Eagle

1861 $5 MS64 NGC. Brilliant, lustrous, and sharply struck. Nice in every way, and superbly suited for inclusion in either a type collection or an advanced Liberty Head half eagle set. It appears to be quite clear that a substantial number of Uncirculated examples (mostly in the MS60 to 62 grade range) were set aside at the time of issue, but neither Akers nor Breen provides any details as to the time and circumstances for the distribution of hoards. The availability of MS64 examples is very limited as can be inferred from the NGC census data, and the presently offered example is worthy of a generous bid as such. Population: 30 in 64, 10 finer (8/05).(#8288) (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25VK, PCGS# 8288)
