    1904-S Half Eagle, MS65
    Sharply Reduced Mintage

    1904-S $5 MS65 PCGS. CAC. Following several years of high San Francisco half eagle coinage production, the mintage in 1904 dropped to just 97,000 coins. The previous five years had an average annual mintage of 1.4 million half eagles at the California coinage factory. Typical survivors range from XF to AU58, with an average certified grade of 57. PCGS has only certified 92 of these in MS60 or finer grades. This lovely Gem has bold design motifs and highly lustrous straw-gold surfaces that show a few trivial marks on Liberty's cheek and below the eagle. An extremely important opportunity. Population: 3 in 65, 4 finer. CAC: 1 in 65, 1 finer (1/20).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25Z5, PCGS# 8410)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
