Liberty Head Half Eagle
Condition Rarity 1847 Half Eagle

1847 Liberty Head Half Eagle. MS-64 (NGC).
Offered is an exceptionally well preserved, aesthetically pleasing near-Gem 1847 half eagle. Smartly impressed with sharp to full striking detail throughout, both sides also offer lively satin mint luster. Vivid medium gold patina and a very smooth appearance enhance this coin's appeal. The 1847 is the most available half eagle from its decade in terms of total number of coins known, but it remains scarce to rare in all Mint State grades. The coin offered here is just shy of Condition Census, and it would be a highlight in any gold cabinet.
PCGS# 8231. NGC ID: 25TL.
NGC Census: 16; 5 finer (MS-65 finest).
