    Description

    1905 Five Dollar, MS66
    Just a Single Coin Finer at PCGS

    1905 $5 MS66 NGC. Few 1905 half eagles approach the Premium Gem level despite a substantial mintage of 302,200 pieces, in part due to copper alloy spots that frequent the surfaces of most examples. A loupe reveals a few such occurrences on this frosty and lustrous MS66 coin, yet the surface quality and strike are far above average and the in-hand eye appeal is undeniable. NGC reports just six numerically finer examples. Census: 20 in 66 (1 in 66+, 2 in 66 ), 6 finer (7/16).
    From The Twelve Oaks Collection.(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25Z6, PCGS# 8411)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
