Description

Mint State 1865 Half Eagle
Only 1,270 Examples Struck

1865 $5 MS60 NGC. Gold coins were rarely seen in circulation in 1865, the final year of the Civil War, and only 1,270 business-strike Liberty half eagles were produced at the Philadelphia Mint. Mint State examples are extremely rare in today's market, and really high-grade coins are nonexistent. The present coin is an attractive MS60 example, with well-detailed design elements that show a touch of softness on the central reverse. The lightly marked yellow-gold surfaces display prooflike reflectivity in sheltered areas, with exceptional eye appeal for the grade. Census: 2 in 60, 3 finer (1/13).(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 2B4N, PCGS# 8298)
