Lot 1948

1808/7 $5 Capped Draped Bust. PCGS graded AU-53. Nicely toned. Deep warm golden orange to coppery patina over semi-lustrous fields and devices. Highly attractive and completely original with the toning highlights on both sides. All but fully struck, with just a insubstantial trace of weakness at the highest neck and wing feathers of the eagle. The rims are outstanding. The overdate isn't as bold as on some (1802/1, 1803/2) but the underlying 7 is visible at the base of the second 8 as well as at the upper left curve. Die crack extends from the rim through the right side of the first 8 well up across Liberty's hair and through the cap on this unusual die variety! Pop 3; 28 finer. (PCGS # 8103) .
Estimated Value $6,000 - 6,500.

Realized $7,188
