Description 1895 $5 MS66 NGC. CAC. The 1895 half eagle is a common date, and does not become scarce until the Gem grade level. In MS66, however, this date is genuinely rare, and only a few coins have been certified finer. This splendid representative showcases sharp design definition and radiant honey-gold mint frost. Close inspection reveals nearly undisturbed surfaces. This piece represents an important opportunity for the date or type collector to acquire a conditionally rare coin with great eye-appeal. Census: 8 in 66, 2 finer (8/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $7050.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
