Condition Census 1866-S Half Eagle, Choice AU58 NGC1866-S $5 Motto AU58 NGC. A condition census piece. Akers noted that most pieces are VF or worse, and that only one or two uncirculated examples of this date are known. If so, they have not made it to the services, as the highest graded examples are AU 58s to this date (10/05). This piece is lustrous and problem free. High point rub is absolutely minimal, and there are some light circulation marks in the fields. Some pink patina is seen in the most protected areas of each side. One might well question if this is one of the coins auctioned as Uncirculated in the 1960s. Look for bidding to be spirited among serious buyers. Census: 5 in 58, none are finer at either service (10/05).
