Description

Bold Gem 1899-S Half Eagle

1899-S $5 MS65 NGC. An issue that is much rarer in Gem condition than the original mintage exceeding 1.5 million pieces would indicate, the 1899-S must have seen many examples melted later. Less than two-dozen Gem or finer specimens are certified at both services combined. This piece is nearly fully struck, with bold frosty straw-gold coloration. The surfaces are also nearly pristine, with the sole exception of a series of scrapes on the lower bust truncation and in the right obverse field nearby. Census: 12 in 65, 4 finer (2/09).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25YT, PCGS# 8399)
