1900-S $5 Liberty PCGS MS65 – SOLD


1900-S $5 Liberty PCGS MS65. The 1900-S is an undervalued issue as the original mintage is a fraction of that of other issues struck at the same time and at different mints. While millions were struck in Philadelphia during the 1900 year, only 329,000 half eagles were issued from the San Francisco mint. One look at the population records will also give the interested buyer some indication as to this coin’s rarity. The population for a Gem MS65 has remained at 7 coins for several years and we wouldn’t doubt if this coin is the only remaining coin in the much sought-after ‘old green holder.’ Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth tend to agree, as they’ve indicated “…the issue ” … is probably 10 times rarer than the 1900 Philadelphia issue.”
