    1929 Half Eagle, AU Details
    Mostly Melted Issue

    1929 $5 -- Cleaned -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. The 1929 half eagle mintage is higher than its quarter eagle counterpart: 662,000 pieces versus 532.000 pieces. But, those extra 130,000 pieces are not important if most of the production never left Treasury vaults. While the 1929 two and a half was widely distributed, the 1929 five dollar was not, and is a notable rarity today. This example shows light wear on the lower headdress plumes, and the surfaces are glossy from cleaning. A slender line through WE merits passing mention, but overall there are fewer marks than expected from brief service as a pocket piece.
