1859 $5 Liberty Head Half Eagle PCGS (CAC) Ex. Fairmont Collection


This richly original example is awash in handsome deep honey-gold patina. The surfaces also exhibit ample mint luster, and most design elements are boldly to sharply defined. The 1859 is a grossly underrated No Motto Liberty Head half eagle in all grades, especially in AU and Mint State preservation. The mintage of 16,734 pieces is similar to that of many of the more highly regarded mintmarked half eagles of the era, but the 1859 is actually more elusive in today's market. Clearly, this attractive and rare survivor represents a significant find for gold collectors. PCGS Population: 9; 22 finer, just three of which are Mint State (MS-64+ finest).
