1806 $5 Capped Bust. Round 6. PCGS graded MS-62 PQ. A well struck example loaded with frosty mint luster; all lightly toned. Rich soft yellow gold surfaces show abundant satiny cartwheel luster. An attractive specimen, as its mint frost is free from the typical harsh cleaning or contact marks. The toning is warm and the strike is full-featured at Liberty's cap and hair, with only a scant few traces of softness running across the left side of the shield on the reverse. No marks of note are seen on the reverse either, even under scrutiny with a glass, the almost immaculate fields seem to glow. Some light hairlines may be all keep this piece from a higher designation. Pop 56; 100 finer (PCGS # 8089) .
Estimated Value $13,000 - 14,000.

Realized $14,950
