***Auction Highlight*** 1840-o Gold Liberty Half Eagle $5 Graded ms63 details By SEGS. HIGHLIGHT OF THE NIGHT – Up for Auction is an exceptionally rare 1840-o Liberty $5 Half Eagle Gold. This piece is of the Narrow Mill type and exhibits raised die lines at IB in LIBERTY. It is identified as Variety Two by Winter. There are a few inconsequential abrasions in the unprotected fields, completely commensurate with the grade assigned. There are some light hairlines which is why it has the details designation. I will note that ms63 straight grade is the finest known! Unusual are the surfaces displaying nice luster and an above average strike that is typically absent on 1840-O fives. The rich, yellow-gold coloration on both sides is very pleasing. This is a great example. Experts agree that a total of less than 200 1840-O half eagles exist in all grades. The combined totals of the NGC Census Report, SEGS POP report and the PCGS Population Report suggest an even lower survival rate, especially when taking into consideration the trend of coins being submitted more than once in pursuit of a higher grade designation. The coin in this lot ranks in the upper echelon of known examples. To enthusiasts of New Orleans gold coinage, this piece represents a nearly insurmountable high grade, and to purveyors of southern gold the current specimen is recognized as one the few Select Uncirculated 1840-O five dollars extant. I am including an ms62 example for your comparison, as no ms63 has come to auction in over 15 Years. 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
