    Finest Certified 1883 Half Eagle, MS67 ★ NGC

    1883 $5 MS67 NGC. The casual collector would suspect that the 1883 is a common date among Liberty Half Eagles, but such is not the case. While the 1880, 1881, and 1882 Philadelphia Mint issues had a combined production of more than 11 million pieces, these enormous mintages must have satisfied demand, since the 1883 had a much lower mintage of 233,400 pieces. The combined NGC and PCGS Mint State population is less than 300 pieces, which indicates that the issue was predominantly circulated. In MS65 grades, NGC and PCGS have certified just four examples, and PCGS has also encapsulated a solitary MS66. Then there is the present coin, the finest at NGC by two grades even excluding its star designation. This razor-sharp Superb Gem has lovely peach color, and the reverse is virtually immaculate as is Liberty's cheek. A few trivial luster grazes are all that deny perfection. Worthy of the finest specialized collection.(#8361) (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25XK, PCGS# 8361)

    Weight: 8.36 grams
