USA Coin Book Item ID Number:
1888-S NGC MS63 $5 gold half eagle, beautiful coin, RARE in high grade like this & NONE GRADED HIGHER. here's another super condition rarity with very low population numbers at the top- just 3 graded MS63 and ZERO graded higher, making this the go-to coin for the next collector who wants the best, a great reason to sock it away or add it to your collection. PCGS has graded only 7 at this level and none higher as well, making this a super tough issue. this is an original piece with no problems and nice looking piece too with well struck devices and nice color and luster. some dates in this series were once considered common but here's another one that proves itself scarce for a late date Liberty issue and definitely unobtainable in any grade higher. stack that up against any relatively 'common' gem red BU 1909-S VDB Lincoln cent or even an 1893-S Morgan dollar for sheer rarity and value! please see the photos for details and any issues that might bother you. yes, it is priced above the price guides, but this date is so rare that they don't sell often enough for the price guides to be accurate or up to date. this is a date that you won't find discounted, if you can find it at all. just try to find another one...
