1810 $5 Capped Draped Bust. Large date, large 5. . BD-4, Breen-6459. NGC graded MS-64. Lovely rich orange and golden toning. Well struck and frosty. The surfaces are highly lustrous and each side has pitching luster that swirls and alternates between lighter and darker hues depending on where the toning lies. Far in advance as the luster goes, so too are the designs: Fully struck in all areas with pinpoint detailing on the stars and cap, the hair curls and clasp. When describing the reverse, the word sharpness applies almost to every area, perhaps with the exception of some soft feathers near the left side of the shield. The wonderful toning is matched on both sides, with strong underlying luster giving it force and beauty far beyond a lesser quality specimen of this year. Pop 27; 7 finer; 1 in 64 Star; 4 in 65; 2 in 66 (PCGS # 8108) .

Die variety: This is one of the more plentiful of all the early gold coins from 1795 to 1834 Motto. The high end of the estimated mintage is 90,000 coins, according to Dannreuther's reference book.
Estimated Value $40,000 - 45,000.

Realized $43,125
