Owner Comments:

Challenging Choice AU 1871-S Half Eagle. The first 1 and the 7 in the date are repunched. Orange-gold patina covers both sides, with some minor areas of verdigris around the devices. The fields show traces of luster, and there are no mentionable marks. The 1871-S five is a very scarce issue with a mintage of only 25,000 pieces.
