1882 5 Dollar Gold Liberty NGC MS62 w/Motto
1882 $5 Gold Liberty NGS MS62
The 1880s was a decade of industrial expansion in the U.S. Robber Barons built railroads, factories and cleared the virgin forests of the Midwest and west. Commerce was booming, and the coin that fueled it on a day-to-day basis was the $5 Gold Liberty. This 1882 $5 Gold Liberty was struck at the Philadelphia Mint and grades Mint State-62 (MS62) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).
Back in the day, most $5 gold coins were immediately spent; few were saved. Finding coins in the true uncirculated grade of MS62 can be a challenge for collectors. Not just because the MS62 coin looks great, but also because it's barely distinguishable from the same coin graded MS63, and at that grade the price takes a sizeable jump. MS62 coins are considered by many collectors to be their best gold value, and they snatch them up whenever they appear.
This 1880 Philadelphia coin shows a strong struck, fresh, full original mint luster and very few distracting marks. It makes a great individual 'value' gold coin addition to your collection. If you are assembling a 12-piece U.S. Mint Gold Coin Type set, consider the MS62 grade. When you're done you'll have a very impressive and valuable collection indeed!
