    Rare Condition Census 1863 Liberty Half Eagle

    1863 $5 AU55 NGC. An exceptionally rare half eagle in the No Motto series. Only 2,442 business strikes were produced during this tumultuous Civil War year, and as one might imagine very few exist today in any grade. When encountered, VF-XF is the usual grade range for this issue and only perhaps fewer than a dozen pieces are known at the AU grade level. No Mint State examples have been certified or are even believed extant. This remarkable example is mildly prooflike with rich coppery-gold color. We cannot imagine an 1863 Half Eagle with greater eye appeal and it handily qualifies as Condition Census. Of the greatest importance to collectors of rare date gold, and an opportunity that is unlikely to be repeated again anytime soon.
    From the Ric Leichtung Collection. (NGC ID# 25VS, PCGS# 8294)
