Important Choice VF 1864-S Half Eagle1864-S $5 VF35 PCGS. This Civil War-era issue of just 3,888 pieces is among the most notable San Francisco half eagles, one proclaimed by Garrett and Guth to be "a tremendous rarity in any grade." With just 10 examples certified by NGC in all grades and only 14 pieces graded by PCGS (12/08), the population data support the assertion. Though this orange-kissed yellow-gold example shows readily appreciable wear across the central devices, as well as several significant abrasions on the portrait and in the fields, the surfaces remain surprisingly radiant, lending the coin considerable visual appeal. Population: 2 in 35, 6 finer (12/08).(Registry values: P9) (NGC ID# 25VV, PCGS# 8297)
