    1869-S Half Eagle, Elusive AU55

    1869-S $5 AU55 NGC. The 1869-S five dollar is elusive in grades above Extremely Fine, due in part to the low mintage of 31,000 pieces. The peach-gold surfaces of this Choice AU example retain luster in the protected areas and a solid strike leaves strong detail on the design features save for the usual softness on the eagle's neck feathers and the arrow feathers. Census: 9 in 55, 12 finer (12/13).(Registry values: P3)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25W8, PCGS# 8318)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
