Something of a dream coin for me: my first early half eagle. What are your thoughts on grade and quality?
Thanks!

An excellent example, tiny dings, scratches and wear result in
AU-55.

I'm with the crowd that can't grade it cause we're too in awe that it simple still exists regardless of the technicalities. Congrats!!!

This coin does indeed have some semi-PL character, and not just in the fields. The letters in LIBERTY in particular show strong reflectivity when viewed at the right angle. This photo shows some of this effect.



PCGS graded this coin AU-50 and I think it's very strong for that grade. It's definitely a major highlight in my collection.
