    1913-S Half Eagle, MS63
    Scarce This Fine

    1913-S $5 MS63 PCGS. The 1913-S is a somewhat overlooked date in high grade, as its mintage of 408,000 pieces and availability in lower grades are deceptive. Most Uncirculated examples are heavily abraded and grade no better than MS61 or MS62. This Select representative is scarce, and finer pieces are rare. The coin is typically struck with weak peripheral definition, although the mintmark is discernible. The central devices show pleasing detail. Satiny straw-gold luster reveals scattered abrasions consistent with the grade, although eye appeal remains pleasing. Population: 52 in 63 (1 in 63+), 18 finer (2/17).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25ZP, PCGS# 8526)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
