    1915-S Half Eagle, MS64
    Major Series Condition Rarity
    Only One Coin Numerically Finer

    1915-S $5 MS64 NGC. The 1915-S half eagle had a fairly small mintage of 164,000 pieces and a comparably low survival rate in high grade. Mint State examples are elusive and typically only seen in the MS62 and lower grade range. MS63 coins are genuinely scarce, and Choice examples are rare. The 1915-S is also the only issue in the entire series with only a single representative certified in Gem or finer condition, an MS65 NGC coin. In that light, the present Choice example, one of only 13 (1 in 64+) certified by NGC (5/18), becomes a significant condition rarity and an important acquisition for the advanced Indian gold collector. Satiny bronze-gold luster gives a glowing appearance to each side, while no significant abrasions are present. Slight strike weakness is seen on the lower headdress feathers, though the motifs are otherwise well-detailed.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 25ZR, PCGS# 8531)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
