Description

1898-S Half Eagle, Semiprooflike Gem
Rare in This Condition

1898-S $5 MS65 NGC. Even though the 1898-S half eagle was struck in an amount approaching 1.4 million coins, Choice examples are scarce, and Gems are rare. (The Clapp-Eliasberg MS68 PCGS coin, the finest known, was likely obtained directly from the San Francisco Mint in the year of issue.) The present Gem is tied for the finest we have handled since we began our Permanent Auction Archives in 1993. Both sides are fully struck, with no mentionable contact, bright semiprooflike fields, and impeccable orange-gold color. Census: 12 in 65, 2 finer (9/12).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25YR, PCGS# 8397)

This is why I like purchasing from Heritage, you are so customer oriented and with your size and my meager purchases it always amazes me how quickly you respond.
