    1929 Indian Five, MS63
    Final Half Eagle Issue

    1929 $5 MS63 PCGS. The Philadelphia Mint struck half eagles for the last time in 1929, when a substantial mintage of 662,000 pieces was produced. Unfortunately, the 1929 is much more difficult to locate than the large production total would suggest. There was little commercial demand for half eagles in the Depression Era economy, so most of the coins were held in government storage until the Gold Recall of 1933 took effect, and were subsequently melted. The present coin is an elusive Select specimen, with well-detailed design elements that show just a touch of softness on the central obverse. The lustrous orange-gold surfaces are lightly marked and eye appeal is quite strong.(Registry values: N4719)
