    The Norweb 1908-D Half Eagle, MS65

    1908-D $5 MS65 PCGS. From the famous Norweb Collection where the cataloger wrote: "believed to have been acquired by Albert Holden at the time of issue." A small number of higher grade 1908-D half eagles survive from the Virgil Brand Hoard, the source of nearly every Gem or near-Gem specimen. However, David Akers wrote in A Handbook of 20th-Century Gold Coins 1907-1933: "Most of the relatively few choice pieces around today are from that Brand hoard although the Norweb specimen was also a borderline gem."
    The Norweb Gem has only a few scattered marks that limit the grade. Both sides have sharp design features with subdued rose-gold color. Two specific characteristics confirm the Norweb provenance. The obverse has a short vertical toning line from the front corner of the headband, ending just right of the base of L in LIBERTY. The reverse has a thin diagonal line in the field over the E in E PLURIBUS UNUM. Both features are clearly visible on the Norweb photo. Population: 10 in 65, 0 finer (11/10).
    Ex: Norweb Collection (Bowers and Merena, 10/1987), lot 975, which realized $7,975; later, American Numismatic Rarities (1/2006), lot 1038, realizing $48,300; American Numismatic Rarities (3/2006), lot 1643, bringing $36,800.
    From The Jim O'Neal Collection of $5 Indians.
