$5.00 1896-S Gold Five Dollar Half Eagle - PCGS MS62

The 1896-S is a distinctly better date in the Half Eagle series, especially in uncirculated grades.

What truly sets this coin apart from others is that it retains its original color.  Most examples were dipped before submission for grading.

An MS62, according to PCGS (Cert. No. 82459651), this coin is typically struck, uniformly blanketed in mint luster, and toned a deep amber color over scattered very light contact.

A prize for the date collector or for a fan of original gold.
