Interesting 1875-S Half Eagle, The Only Certified MS64 Representative

1875-S $5 MS64 NGC. The scroll on which the motto IN GOD WE TRUST is inscribed is weakly defined from excessive die polishing, but the pleasant side-effect of this attempt to prolong die life is the bold prooflike finish on both sides. There is still, however, evidence of die rust on the reverse over the letters in STATES, and there is porosity in the planchet around both the obverse and reverse peripheries. All of these features are, of course, Mint-made, and the surfaces reveal very few post-production distractions. A powerfully impressed example, and the finest certified survivor from an original mintage of just 9,000 coins. In fact, this coin is one of only two Mint State pieces known to NGC and PCGS, the other being an MS60 NGC representative (5/01).
From the Genaitis Collection of 1875 Coinage. (NGC ID# 25WV, PCGS# 8338)
