1847/7 $5 Half Eagle Gold Coin, AU58 NGC. Breen-6570.
The top of the 7 is prominently repunched. Not to
be confused with the "Top of Extra 7" Guide
Book variety, which is Breen-6571. Determined cherrypickers
can locate several different repunched date and misplaced
date varieties of the 1847. Well struck and partly
lustrous with a pleasantly unmarked appearance. This
is one of the nicer examples we have seen over the
years and seems to be quite undervalued. A genuinely
nice specimen that appears fully mint state uncirculated
and will please the fussiest Numismatist. Half Eagle
gold coins in general seem like such a bargain to
us and with just a little investor activity should
see some price increases in the years ahead.
