Description

Rare 1862-S Half Eagle

1862-S $5 VF 35 PCGS. Another difficult issue in this era of scarce S-mint half eagles, both outright and conditionally. Even its low mintage of 9,500 pieces does not fully account for this issue's rarity. Apparently what wasn't melted was heavily circulated, since XF coins are about as fine as one is ever likely to encounter. This is a strong VF example with details very closely approximating those of a higher grade. (NGC ID# 25VR, PCGS# 8293)
