1811 $5 Gold Capped Draped Bust. Small 5. PCGS graded MS-61 Miller-116, Breen 1-B. R-4. Another fantastic and purely original early half eagle from this collection. Straw yellow color with orange highlights hugging all the devices and lettering. The surfaces are finely granular and possessing the luster of a MS-63 example. Well struck and the devices are frosty, in contrast to the satiny fields. There is a small mint made planchet depression under the eagle's neck. We wonder why this specimen is in a MS-61 holder when the mark free and pristine nature seems to be definitive of a higher grade. PCGS has graded 10 in MS-61 with 66 finer (PCGS # 8109) .
Estimated Value $5,500 - 6,000.
The Michael M. Magdic Collection.

Realized $8,855
