    1856-O Half Eagle Rarity, AU55

    1856-O $5 AU55 NGC. A wonderful half eagle from a limited mintage of just 10,000 coins. The 1856-O is an important rarity in the half eagle series that rarely appears so nice. A few scattered surface marks are of little concern, as the overall eye appeal is excellent. Both sides have satiny green-gold luster with a trace of orange toning. Census: 5 in 55, 12 finer (1/08).(Registry values: P7)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25UY, PCGS# 8269)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
