    Description

    1862-S Half Eagle, XF45
    Outstanding Visual Appeal

    1862-S $5 XF45 NGC. The absolute rarity of this low-mintage issue is indisputable, and easily verified by a cursory examination of NGC and PCGS population data. NGC has graded a mere 41 pieces, while PCGS has seen just 39 examples. Keep in mind that these minuscule numbers may include resubmissions. This XF45 coin has outstanding visual appeal with smooth, barely-marked surfaces and lovely antique-gold toning accented by hints of lilac and peach on each side. Census: 8 in 45, 19 finer (3/14).(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 25VR, PCGS# 8293)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
