1884-S Half Eagle PCGS MS64. A premium quality half eagle from the San Francisco Mint. A total of 177,000 half eagles were struck during the year. Although the remaining survivors are considered common, most are in circulated and lower AU grades. Coins as nice as the present piece are actually quite scarce.

The with motto half eagles are not much collected by date, due to the extensive size and cost of the full set. This results in relatively low prices for the various date/mintmark combinations. At the same time, an excellent opportunity arises for the collector who wishes to start a challenge. Especially in the mint-state grades 64 and higher, these coins tend to keep their value and thus are a very safe investment. During many centuries, gold has kept its value, unlike many other items.

Sharply struck, this coin shows full cartwheel luster on both sides. A very pleasing orange gold color highlights the virtually mark free surfaces. A few tiny abrasions, barely visible to the naked eye are the only factor that keep this coin out of a higher grade holder.

Happy Collecting,
