1853 NGC MS61 $5 gold half eagle, nice original NO MOTTO type piece. here's a good looking No Motto Liberty half eagle, rather scarce in uncirculated condition because of all the type sets out there. this is an original piece, strongly struck with nice color and luster. no problems and nice looking piece too with well struck devices. to get a good idea how rare No Motto half eagles really are, PCGS reports that to this date, they have graded only 1,623 No Motto half eagles in mint state in their entire 30 years in business. that number includes every date in the 28 year run, with almost 240 of them from 1861 alone. now that is rare in my book. stack these numbers up against the value vs rarity you get from any other series and you'll understand why I think this is the greatest series in US numismatics, with eagles a close second.
