Sale 63

Lot 1496

1848. PCGS graded MS-63. A nice bold strike with semi reflective surfaces and all, lightly toned. In an old green label holder. A lovely No Motto half eagle. Some faint marks are evident under low magnification, but the overall quality and appeal are both outstanding to the unaided eye. A first-class example of a date whose true rarity is greatly underappreciated. Here is a date that is practically unknown in Mint State despite its liberal mintage figure of 260,775 pieces. It could be many years before a comparable specimen crosses the auction block, or the present piece reappears. Once it sells, we expect it will be off the market for a decade or more. Pop 5; none finer (PCGS # 8236) .
Estimated Value $8,000 - 8,500.

Realized $7,533
