Half Eagle Liberty Head and Moto Above Eagle ANACS Graded AU58 Details
Description: A nice ANACS graded gold 1899 Liberty Head design with motto above eagle five dollar or half eagle. The coin itself is better than the scan shows and shows beautiful details. The coin which was struck in the San Francisco mint shows beautiful and well preserved details with minimum wear consistent with its grade and about uncirculated state. The obverse shows the beautiful image of the head of lady Liberty with her hair and her facial details as well as the letters in the word LIBERTY. The reverse also shows no appreciable wear and shows details of the eagle as well as the lettering. Just a gorgeous coin. The coin is lightly toned with some luster. The coin is graded by ANACS as AU 58 (Choice About Uncirculated) Details with the notation scratched. Close examination of the coin, reveals a couple of scratches in the field near the base of lady Liberty's bust, but these are really not observed with the naked eye all that well. The coin is still beautiful and in great condition. These coins were designed by Christian Gobrecht. Please carefully review scan presented as it is part and parcel of our description.
