1843 $5 Liberty. PCGS graded MS-64. Boldly struck with nice orange golden toning. Effusive, indeed even luxurious quantities of mint frost in amounts so copious it borders on sinful, and warm flaxen-gold to orange-gold color. In light of that, we can also say this piece is nicely struck with extremely full details on both sides. One of fewer than 135 pieces believed to remain from an original circulation strike mintage of 44,353. Of those that do exist we estimate that six to nine are in Mint State today, some having advanced from AU. Choice, lovely specimens like this always excite bidders. Pop 2; none finer at PCGS. (PCGS # 8213) .
Estimated Value $15,000 - 17,000.

Realized $17,250
