1806 $5 Gold Capped Bust. Round 6. PCGS graded MS-63 Miller 84: 6-F, Breen 5-E, Rarity-2. Deep straw coloration with pristine originality. While the 1806 Round 6 half eagle is not the rarest issue from this early half eagle series, few are still found with intact skin and surfaces. Furthermore, this variety frequently is found with reverse weakness and the present example supercedes that trend, displaying full feather detail on the eagle's breast and only a touch of weakness in the vertical lines of the shield. The dentilation above RTY of LIBERTY is weak and lacking definition. The only adjustment marks to note are some shallow ones through the letters of AMERICA. This choice-uncirculated example is not lacking in the eye appeal department and the luster is so thick it borders on the near-gem category. PCGS population of 63 in MS-63, 38 in MS-64 and 1 in MS-65 (PCGS # 8089) .
Estimated Value $13,000 - 15,000.

Realized $15,525
