Description

Elusive 1866-S Motto Half Eagle, XF40

1866-S $5 Motto XF40 PCGS. CAC. The surfaces are primarily antique-gold on this example, with hints of peach in portions of the recessed areas and a spot of bright yellow in the hair above the R in LIBERTY. As expected at this grade level, the surfaces are abraded. Despite a mintage considerably larger than its No Motto counterpart, the 1866-S Motto is generally found in Very Fine and Extremely Fine; About Uncirculated pieces are rare, and the issue is virtually unknown in Mint State. Population: 11 in 40, 17 finer (3/13).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25W2, PCGS# 8312)
