1800 PCGS MS61 CAC $5 Half Eagle Draped Bust Early Gold
This 1800 PCGS MS61 CAC $5 Draped Bust Half Eagle is stunning. A lovely BD-2, one of the marriages with the Blunt 1 in the date. Rated as Rarity-3+, there are perhaps 175-250 known in all grades per Bass-Dannreuther. The presently offered Brilliant Uncirculated specimen has a flashy, almost Prooflike-luster on both sides and a rich golden color with accents of a soft green and rose hue when the brilliant surfaces are rotated in a light. Struck from Die State b/b, both sides show bold clashing. Despite a few microscopic marks found with a strong glass, this highly lustrous and well struck early $5 has distinct claims to a higher grade; the eye appeal is VERY HIGH END for the assigned grade. CAC Approved.
Latest APR: AU58+ sold for $25,200 4-22.
