Earlier Date, Choice Original, Lightly Mirrored Fields, Accurately Graded, Port Matilda Collection. A lovely 1855 $5 half eagle offering from the Port Matilda Collection. Dave Akers relates the following concerning this date in the $5 series, "Like many other Philadelphia Mint Half Eagles of the 1840's and 1850's the 1855 is often considered to be a relatively common date. It certainly is not, however, and while not exactly a great rarity in the lower grades, it is rare in AU or uncirculated condition." This example offers lightly mirrored fields and reflective luster. Blemishes are minimal. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with edge ring insert and ready for a home in a new collection.
