1867 MS-61 PL NGC.

This bright deep yellow-gold half eagle offers softly frosted and essentially unmarked devices along with substantially mirrored fields. The strike is needle-sharp in all places, and the luster is unbroken on the high points. A few light scattered ticks – made obvious by the reflectivity of the fields – account for the grade, but with the rare 1867 half eagle, a few faint ticks never stopped any serious collector. Just 6,870 examples of the date were struck, and among surviving certified specimens, the present piece is one of just two Mint State examples of the date noted by NGC. The typical grade for the date seems to be VF to AU, with the majority of the population at EF and AU, suggesting they were hoarded almost as soon as they were released by the Mother Mint in this post-Civil War year. All told, NGC has listed just 54 certification events for this date in grades of VF and finer. Indeed, PCGS suggests that fewer than 100 examples of the date exist in any grade. We are pleased to offer a Condition Census specimen of the date, a remarkable coin that is choice for the grade. We expect this rarity will entice more than one specialist at bidding time.
NGC Census: 1; no others within the PL designation. There is a solitary MS-62, not PL.
