          Comments about $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagle (Cleaned):

          I just wanted some old US gold that would be safe to handle. I can't impair the value of the coin, but I can feel it in my hand and show it to people.

          Plus, it's fun to own history. A MS63 or so coin might be impressive, but no one ever used it to buy gin in a speakeasy in the Roaring Twenties like a coin with some wear might have.

              Comments about $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagle (Cleaned):

              I bought this coin because a $5 gold piece was something I always dreamed about finding with my metal detector. I received an 1899 San Francisco Mint coin in extremely fine condition, one I was proud to show to friends as an example of how money used to look like.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Service and delivery were excellent. A doorbell rang and it was in my hand. Better than a document saying I owned bullion somewhere....rather it was in my hand than in a data base somewhere.

                  Coin was cleaned, but at least AU 50-52 cleaned condition and date was fairly old, 1880. It was more than I expected, and I could probably sell today for what I paid for it or close.

                            I ordered this half eagle knowing that it was a cleaned coin, so the scuffing and obviously dipped appearance wasn't an issue at all.

                            However, it seems that the coin was once soldered into a setting (or something of that type) and it has a rather ugly protuberance along the rim. As such, even with the lower premium put on this cleaned coin, it did not quite meet the quality standards that I've come to expect from APMEX.

                            Bought a few of these coins 3 years ago. They were beautiful and have almost tripled in value.

                            I'm new to coin collecting, and was looking for a good starter coin. I was impressed by the very nice quality of the $5 liberty gold coin; it looked amazing! I'm very happy with my choice.
