Description

1872 AU 50 PCGS. With one of the lowest mintages in the entire half eagle denomination (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 we can find on this otherwise pleasing coin. The surfaces have taken on a deep reddish patina and the fields retain much of the original prooflike finish. Trends $3,500. (NGC ID# 25WF, PCGS# 8325)
