1806 $5 Capped Bust. Pointed 6. VF-30 Breen-4E. 8X5 Stars Small obverse rim nick. Nicely toned and a very attractive, highly collectable example of one of America's "classic period" gold coins. It is always a treat to be able to add a Jefferson-era coin to ones collection, especially a gold coin, the most prestigious metal used on coinage. So noble were these, and because they were meant for only the richest or most economically astute persons, that the mint felt no need to include a denomination on half eagles until 1807! It was simply understood that anyone receiving one in payment for goods or services provided, would know what it was without having to be told! (PCGS # 8090) .
Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,000.

Realized $6,038
