Liberty Head $5
1863 $5 MS

Description & Analysis

An exceptionally rare half eagle in the No Motto series. Only 2,442 business strikes were produced, and as one might imagine very few exist today in any grade. When encountered, VF-XF is the usual grade range for this issue with only a few pieces known in AU (no mint state examples are believed extant).
