    1869-S Half Eagle, AU55
    Underrated S-Mint Five Dollar Issue

    1869-S $5 AU55 NGC. Small S mintmark. This S-mint issue from the late 1860s is likely underrated, a situation that will probably correct someday. The mintage was 31,000 pieces, most of which circulated extensively in the Wild West of the day. This Choice AU example boasts great eye appeal and a decent strike over surfaces with deep reddish-orange color and only light field chatter. A conditionally elusive coin. Census: 10 in 55, 12 finer (2/14).
    From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: P3)

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

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
