    One of the Finest Known 1879 Half Eagles, MS64

    1879 $5 MS64 NGC. While certainly a common coin in the lower grades, high grade examples of this date are very elusive. Only 12 pieces have been so graded by both of the major services with a mere five coins finer (11/04)--this out of an original mintage of 301,920 business strikes. Sharply defined throughout, the surfaces show soft, frosted mint luster and there are no reportable abrasions on either side.(#8348) (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25X7, PCGS# 8348)
