1895 $5 Liberty. NGC graded MS-65. Lovely orange and golden toning. The fully brilliant Gem we now hand over bidders beats (from a technical angle) practically all of the P-mint half eagles of this grade that have passed through the various grading services. This is a strongly struck Liberty five, with excellent detail to all the important high points of Liberty: her hair, hair bun, coronet, and stars. Where sometimes you'll see the add on "with the possible exception of these regions of the eagle (standard for the issue)", we are thrilled to say that no such add on is required to describe the bold eagle. Pop 58; 5 in 66, 2 in 67 (PCGS # 8390) .
Estimated Value $3,300 - 3,500.

Realized $3,623
