    1845-O Half Eagle, MS63
    Condition Census Rarity

    1845-O $5 MS63 PCGS. Variety 1, as always for this issue. The 18 in the date is repunched. As a date the 1845-O half eagle is a great rarity in Uncirculated condition. The finest pieces certified are two MS63s at PCGS and two also at NGC (one of which at the latter service is Star designated) (1/21). The present offering is an absolute Condition Census example. We have not handled a piece in this grade since the year 2000, making the current example an incredible opportunity for the collector who has long waited for a chance to acquire a Condition Census example of this New Orleans issue.

    Luster is vibrant and softly frosted, yielding peach-gold coloration. The strike is significantly sharper than expected for a New Orleans product, particularly throughout the border stars and the central high points. Only trivial marks and hairlines prevent an even finer grade from PCGS. Population: 2 in 63, 0 finer (1/21).(Registry values: P7)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25TD, PCGS# 8225)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
