1872 $5 Liberty. PCGS graded MS-64. In PCGS holder 22111138. Light golden toning with reflective fields. A sparkling, upper Condition Census example of this early With Motto half eagle, its overall rarity and condition census in great part derived from a tiny mintage of business strikes. Both sides exhibit remarkably clean reflective fields along with appealing dusky-gold to pale orange color. Devices show frosted contrast against this. Not only are the surfaces highly reflective, but the coin is well struck save for trivial softness on the curls over Liberty's brow and on the arrow feathers. Nearly unabraded fields are only limited in grade by a few wispy blemishes. Tied for finest known. Low mintage date of 1,660. Pop 2; none finer at either service. (PCGS # 8325) .
Estimated Value $17,000 - 19,000.

Realized $20,700
