    1844-O Liberty Half Eagle, MS63
    Rarely Seen Finer

    1844-O $5 MS63 PCGS. Variety 5. The New Orleans Mint struck a large production of 364,600 Liberty half eagles in 1844, making the 1844-O the most available No Motto half eagle from the famous Southern facility. The 1844-O is also relatively available in high grade, making it a popular choice of branch mint type collectors. The issue is rare at the MS63 grade level, however, and finer coins are virtually unobtainable. This impressive Select example exhibits sharply detailed design elements throughout. Some of the vertical lines in the shield extend far into the horizontal stripes at the top. The lightly marked yellow-gold surfaces are lustrous and appealing. Population: 11 in 63 (2 in 63+), 1 finer (8/21).(Registry values: P5)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25TA, PCGS# 8222)
