$5.00 1888-S Gold Five Dollar Half Eagle - UNC Details

The 1888-S Half Eagle is a particularly elusive coin . . . in all grades.

Despite its uncirculated detail, copious luster, and comparativley few deep marks, we do not feel this example is gradable, as there are a few nearly horizontal slide marks across Liberty's bust, and some ultra-light hairlines in the obverse fields.

Still, the coin possesses a superior look to alternative specimens in this price range.
