Description

1866-S Half Eagle, AU55
Final No Motto Issue

1866-S $5 No Motto AU55 NGC. It was not until 1869 that the transcontinental railroad was completed. Thus, the Motto dies introduced in 1866 at Philadelphia failed to reach San Francisco prior to April 9. By then, 9,000 No Motto fives were struck. None received numismatic consideration beyond face value for an additional three decades. As a result, no Uncirculated examples are known. A lightly abraded honey-gold five with minimal wear. The margins and motifs display ample luster. Census: 2 in 55, 8 finer (6/13).
Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 7/2006), lot 1237, which realized $8,337.50.(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 25VY, PCGS# 8300)
