Owner Comments:

1875-S Half Eagle, Choice AU - Lovely Orange-Gold Color. Another low-mintage issue, the 1875-S half eagle saw only 9,000 coins produced, and most circulated widely. This Choice AU example is far finer than usually seen, with lovely orange-gold color, only minor signs of contact, and a decent strike, save for softness on the motto. Low-mintage Western gold specialists will be on the alert for this piece.
