Elusive 1872 Half Eagle, AU50 PCGS1872 $5 AU50 PCGS. With one of the lowest mintages in the entire series (1,660 pieces), it is not surprising that '72 Half Eagles are rare in all grades. Most survivors are VF or XF at best, with AU coins being quite rare and elusive. This piece shows a bit of softness on the highpoints, this being the only detracting feature that we can find on this otherwise pleasing example, other than a couple of noticeable obverse field marks. The surfaces have taken on a deep reddish patina, and the fields retain much of the original prooflike finish. Population: 6 in 50, 17 finer (10/03). (#8325) (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25WF, PCGS# 8325)
