1873 PCGS MS63 Liberty half eagle $5 gold, 10 Population & ONLY 10 GRADED HIGHER. here's a well above average looking piece with thick satiny eye appealing luster, definitely worthy of a good premium. this beautiful little lady has fully original golden orange color with outstanding full mint bloom luster. it is strongly struck to boot, but what sets this one apart from most is that although it is graded properly, it has the eye appeal of a gem MS65. if you love strike, luster and eye appeal all rolled into one, this is the coin for you at any price. although it used to be thought of as a common date, population numbers show a different story altogether- this is one of the biggest sleepers of the era in my humble opinion. how rare is it? it has a very low population of 10 in MS63 and only 10 graded higher. NGC has graded half as many. there have only been 48 graded in all mint state grades combined by PCGS in the past thirty years, now that's scarce. contrary to popular belief, the open 3 variety is scarcer in MS62 and above. the next grade up costs more than twice as much so maybe this is a good candidate for a re-grade. please see the photos- that is the exact coin you will receive. don't pass on this one, nicest '73 I have ever had and she really is pretty.
