1845-D $2.50 Liberty. NGC graded AU-58. Well strcuk and untoned. There is a fine hairline from the L in Liberty to the curl above the ear. Only 19,460 minted. Lustrous gold with ample luster left. Typically found Very Fine to Extremely Fine, the few AU specimens known tend to cluster around the lower numbers (50, 53), inferior to the one offered. The 1845 date logotype is extremely close to and nearly touching Liberty's truncation line, and is notably separated from the dentils below, although still close. The logotype, being punched more deeply into the die at the first part of the date than toward the end, reflects the "by hand" processes of die making in those days. On the reverse, the D mintmark overlaps an arrow feather, while the lower left serif of D touches the 1 in the denominator. Pop 30; 2 in 60; 4 in 61; 1 in 62; 1 in 63. (PCGS # 7738) .
Estimated Value $5,000 - 5,500.

Realized $5,175
