Incredible 1890 Liberty Half Eagle MS681890 $5 MS68 NGC. Phenomenal quality for this or any other issue in the Liberty Half Eagle series. The sheer eye appeal of this coin helps secure the lofty MS68 designation. Sharply defined in all areas, the fields are bright and shimmer with prooflike reflectivity, as one might expect of an issue of just 4,240 business strikes. The surfaces are not completely free from post-striking marks, but are temptingly close and certainly none are obvious to the unaided eye. To state that this coin is the finest known of the few pieces that are known is to state the obvious. It is likely that a wealthy collector acquired this piece directly from the Philadelphia Mint. But who really knows for sure? Perhaps someone noticed the low mintage at the time of issue, celebrated a 50th anniversary, or marked the arrival of a first-born child. For the entire With Motto type, only nine other pieces have been so graded by NGC, while two are certified finer (3/04). Just six others are certified as such by PCGS (4/04). (#8375) (NGC ID# 25Y2, PCGS# 8375)
