Item Description:
This coin is an amazing survivor with the most originally beautiful fields that we have ever seen on an early Half Eagle. Well-struck with luminescent luster, the light hints of copper throughout actually add to the beauty! This coin can be traced back to an offering by David Akers of the Naftzger Collection, Abe Kosoff, and is truly a treasure of numismatics. One of our favorite coins that we have ever offered! CAC approved for quality. PCGS+ grade for premium quality at the top of end of the assigned grade.
