1871 $5 PCGS MS61

DLRC #: 1361718 // PCGS #: 8322

An incredibly underrated date in the Half Eagle series from a mintage of just 3,200 pieces. Only 3 others are graded as such by PCGS with no coins graded finer. A lustrous piece with the typical, expected bag marks, but with incredibly flashy, nearly prooflike fields.
