Coin Details

Origin/Country: UNITED STATES
Design Description: HALF EAGLES - CORONET
Item Description: $5 1873 S
Full Grade: NGC AU 55
Owner: Desert Gold

Owner Comments:

The 31,000 piece 1873-S is scarce in most grades, and is virtually unobtainable in Mint State, where only one coin has been certified, an NGC MS61. The Choice AU example in this sale displays bright yellow-gold surfaces tinted with red, with traces of luster in the recesses. Generally well defined, with just a few minuscule marks.
