    1863 Half Eagle, AU Details
    Only 30 to 40 Pieces Believed Extant

    1863 $5 -- Repaired -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. With a mintage of only 2,442 pieces the 1863 half eagle is elusive in all grades. PCGS estimates only 30 to 40 pieces are known overall, suggesting that the certified population totals include numerous duplications. This is an AU Details example with mellow orange-gold patina and sharp definition. Tooling is evident in the fields and the coin is cleaned, but to the unaided eye this piece is a pleasing and collectible example of this rare Philadelphia issue.
