$5.00 1872-S Gold Five Dollar Half Eagle - PCGS AU50 PQ

A rare date, most 1872-S Half Eagles grade only VF on down, when encountered.

This coin sports original amber / gold color over significant remaining luster.  The design details are better than expected for this date, and marks are none too distracting.

Conservatively graded AU50 by PCGS (Cert. No. 41453195), this coin  is a worthy example for an advanced gold collection.
