Description & Analysis

The 1903-S half eagle is one of the most common dates of the Liberty Head five dollar series. As indicated by the population data, even Mint State coins through the near-Gem level of preservation are obtainable. There is a sharp drop in MS65 pieces, and Premium Gem and finer specimens become rare.
