***Auction Highlight*** 1907 TOP POP Gold Liberty Half Eagle $5 Graded ms68 By SEGS. HIGHLIGHT OF THE ENTIRE AUCTION – Up for Auction is a TOP POP Tied for Finest Known, None Finer, Spectacular 1907 $5 Liberty Head Gold Half Eagle Graded ms68, near perfection. The 1907 Liberty Head half eagle was produced in a nominal amount of 626,100 circulation strikes plus 92 proof coins, and it is widely available in lower Mint State grades. The average mint state example grades a tad higher than MS62, at which level most are attractive and lustrous, well-produced but a bit banged up from coin-to-coin contact, as a rule.The 1907 Liberty Head (and the 1907-D and 1908 of the same design) seem anachronistic to collectors today, as it was, of course, the year that Augustus Saint-Gaudens' stunning new designs for the ten and twenty dollar denominations came to numismatic awareness. It would be 1908, however, before Bela Pratt's sunken-relief (intaglio or coelanaglyptic) designs for the quarter eagle and half eagle would debut.All this gives the late Liberty Head coinage a special fondness in collectors' hearts. The present piece will definitely quicken those hearts as well, as the finest certified of the issue It is impossible to single out which criterion is the most blatantly appealing -- the sharp strike, the flowing, caramel-gold color, the immaculate preservation? -- but one glance will tell collectors all they need to know. I have included another ms68, which is currently listed on collectors corner for sale at $63,750. If you look at that example, please note the discoloration by the date and the bumpiness on the rim. I think ours is clearly finer. A Corey's Pick, Bid to Win, Don't let it get Away, you might not find its equal Coin. I give this coin my highest recommendation
