Description

Luminous 1871-S Half Eagle, AU50

1871-S $5 AU50 NGC. Despite its mintage of 25,000 pieces, the 1871-S half eagle, like almost all the other San Francisco half eagles of the decade, is elusive in any grade. This lightly worn yellow-gold example, which possesses a strike worthy of the Dahlonega Mint, has wheat accents and traces of luster associated with the luminous surfaces. Aside from the usual handling marks, this piece has a distinctive sinusoidal flaw that crosses the lower bust. Census: 10 in 50, 48 finer (5/09).
From The Kiawah Collection.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25WE, PCGS# 8324)
