$5 Capped Draped Bust. 1810. Small date, large 5, Breen 2-d, Miller-113, R-4. PCGS graded MS-64. A well struck example of this popular variety. The surfaces show areas of light of coppery gold toning, especially on the reverse. We note that the obverse is sharply struck as expected, and all the stars show full central points and all of Liberty's curls are complete. On the reverse we note adjustment marks going different directions, mostly at the rims and all fairly faint. One small die crack from A2 through the wing to the top of the scroll is noted, and on the obverse from stars three to six is another minor die crack. PCGS has graded 7 this high, with just a single coin graded higher of this major and important variety (PCGS # 8106) .
Estimated Value $30,000-UP.

Realized $28,750
