1862-S $5 Gold Liberty. PCGS graded AU-53. A very solid example of an issue that saw heavy circulation coupled with no collector demand at the time of issue. Of the 9,500 pieces produced at San Francisco in 1862, even die hard gold specialists would be hard pressed to find an example in a technical grade finer than this piece. With regards to strike, this example is above average with feather and hair detail quite pronounced. While light hairlines exist over semi-reflective fields, soft film has reduced the visual impact of this old cleaning. The luster on the reverse is similar to that found on AU58 specimens. A rare opportunity to acquire a very tough San Francisco half eagle issue. PCGS population of 2 in AU-53, 3 in AU-55 and 1 in MS-61 (PCGS # 8293) .
Estimated Value $7,000 - 7,500.

Realized $9,775
