Rare Unc. Key Date
No half eagles were struck between 1916 and 1929, but the Philadelphia Mint produced a total of 662,000 coins in the later year. Unfortunately, the effects of the Great Depression were beginning to be felt and there was little need for the coins in the shrinking economy. Most of the mintage was held in government storage and later destroyed after 1933. No half eagles were struck in later years and the 1929 is a key date in the series today. Although our reverse image makes that side of the coin appear to be dark, you’re seeing the effect of the angle and lighting – the true color is actually quite similar to that of the obverse. Listed at $46,500 in the NGC price guide.
