Description

PCGS 1875-S AU 58. This is undoubtedly the finest known example of this rare With Motto S-mint half eagle. Only one coin was recorded as having been sold over a sixty-year period that graded higher than XF. That piece was out of the Roach Sale in 1944 and graded uncirculated, and while we do not know if this is the same coin, we do know that according to the most recent population data from the major grading services, this is the finest coin certified. The only other piece to have even been graded in AU is a PCGS AU 53. Akers statement that "...most known specimens grade from VG to VF" seems accurate. The only other example we have handled in the past several years was an uncertified VG 10.
This is a sharply defined coin that has almost complete mint luster, just thinning out a bit in the fields. There are several field scratches on each side that are prominent enough to serve as identifiers for pedigree purposes. An extremely rare coin and a singularly important opportunity for the gold specialist. Unlisted in Trends any finer than XF 40. (NGC ID# 25WV, PCGS# 8338)
