1850 NGC AU55 $5 gold half eagle, RARE low pop of 20, very hard to find w /eye appeal. JUST TRY TO FIND AN EYE APPEALING EXAMPLE OF THIS DATE. this one is at the top of the grade. this pretty little lady still has about 80% of her original mint luster remaining and has a very sharp strike, difficult to find in this date. looks very original with a nice bright golden color and it has great eye appeal for the grade assigned. this is one of those sleeper dates that has low pop numbers but still sells for half what similar rarity sells for. NGC has graded only 20 in this grade and there are just 141 coins graded in all grades combined in their 30 years in the grading business, with many of those are re-submissions fishing for a higher grade and profit to the submitters. PCGS has graded only 86 in all grades combined, attesting to it's true scarcity. stack these numbers and the Carson City popularity up against any 1916-D dime or gem BU 1909-S VDB cent for relative rarity and sheer value. this is a real sleeper and the price guides still haven't updated these after decades of being rather stagnant. the NGC online price guide lists an average example at $1,450.00 and PCGS's online guide lists it at $1,400.00. this is a premium piece for the grade and well worth the premium asked.

Why buy our coins for your collection? Simple- because we are collectors looking for beautiful high quality coins for our collection, not dealers looking for a quick buck. If it wasn't nice enough to fit our high quality set, we didn't buy it. If it was rare but ugly and we're now selling it, we will describe it as such, otherwise you can expect a nice eye appealing coin for your money and a money back guaranty (we don't ask for a restock fee) that you'll love it as much as we did. We love this hobby and want you to enjoy it as much as we have all these years!
