    1879 Half Eagle, MS64
    Only Three Numerically Finer

    1879 $5 MS64 NGC. Lower level Mint State 1879 half eagles, while hardly common, are available with enough frequency that collectors have reasonable hopes of obtaining one. That is certainly true for grades from AU58 to MS62, for nearly 80% of NGC submissions fall in that grade range. However MS63 and MS64 examples are rare, and MS65 pieces are nearly impossible. This lovely near-Gem has hints of pinkish-rose toning over its brilliant yellow-gold surfaces with full luster and trivial marks. Census: 25 in 64 (2 in 64+, 1 in 64 ), 3 finer (1/14).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25X7, PCGS# 8348)
