Pop-Top 1879 $5 in PCGS MS-66

Among the coins that have already been consigned to our June 2012 Baltimore auction is the finest PCGS-graded 1879 half eagle. A scarce date to begin with, PCGS has graded only three pieces in MS-65 with just one piece (this one) finer. The coin was a part of “The Great Lakes Collection” offered in our (Bowers and Merena) November 1998 auction sale (prior pedigree unrecorded). Since that time, it has resided with the consignor. An attractive example with strong luster, a full strike and pleasing original golden toning. We are proud to be able to offer this coin again to the current generation of Set Registry collectors. Destined for a special collection of half eagles, so if this is a coin currently on your want list, plan to participate and bid liberally.
