1845-D $5 Liberty. PCGS graded MS-61. Nice strike and untoned. Semi reflective fields. Choice for the grade. Pop 5; 2 in 62; 3 in 63; 1 in 65. The frosty textured surfaces are awash in rich orange-gold colors, and both sides are uncommonly well preserved for this often indifferently cared for D-mint type. Struck with meticulous care by the dies as seen in the sharp stars and equally impressive centers including the eagle's neck and leg detail. Bidders might as well accept the fact that you can nail up a horseshoe for luck or pray to the gods, but it will be the one with the highest bid who lands this beautiful half eagle from the Dahlonega Mint. Do not let the tension in the room daunt you from bidding (PCGS # 8224) .
Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.

Realized $9,200
