1843-O $5 Liberty. Large letters. NGC graded MS-64. A fabulous example displaying a nice detailed strike including full star radials and intensely frosty mint surfaces. We note some mint caused stray "hay" marks scattered about with a touch of delicate golden toning deepening just a bit about the borders. We will pass briefly over the details in the strike, for this coin is above-average in terms of the detail seen on the few known Mint State New Orleans minted half eagles, with full sharp stars, marginal softness at the centers, but highly detailed where it counts. A "fresh" and very choice example of this "O" mint rarity. We hardly need to just what a special coin this is, and how much attention it will attract from bidders near and far. A total of 82,000 minted of both varieties. Pop 8; 1 finer in 65 (PCGS # 8216) .
Estimated Value $20,000 - 25,000.

Realized $21,850
