Description

    Sharply-Struck MS65 1885 Half Eagle

    1885 $5 MS65 NGC. Brilliant, frosty, and sharply struck. Outstanding in every way. Liberty's hair details are bold, and all of the obverse stars are fully and deeply defined. The eagle's claw and feather features are about as sharp as could be desired. Although the 1885 is not a particularly scarce issue in Uncirculated grade, comparatively few have survived at the MS65 grade level, and it's doubtful that more than just a tiny handful could match the quality offered here. Worth a generous bid. Population: 8 in 65, 1 finer (4/05).(#8367) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25XS, PCGS# 8367)

    Weight: 8.36 grams
