    1869 Half Eagle, AU55
    Underrated in All Grades

    1869 $5 AU55 NGC. The 1869 half eagle comes from a small mintage of 1,760 pieces, of which only 50 or 60 examples are believed to survive in all grades. This underrated issue is extremely rare any finer than the present coin. The strike displays bold rendering, and each side has medium yellow-gold color with scattered abrasions. The upper loop of a misplaced numeral appears in the dentils beneath the 86 of the date. Two small, faint, linear lumps in the field beneath the 8 could also be from a dropped date punch.(Registry values: P3)

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
