1871 $5 Liberty. NGC graded AU-58. Well struck with pleasing golden toning over reflective surfaces on both sides. A low-mintage rarity; just 3,200 business strikes of the date were produced. Indeed, David Akers knew of just two examples of the date in AU, stating also that the date was probably unknown in Mint State, although in the 30 years since publication of his books, a handful of new specimens surfaces and received third-party grades. Today the NGC census in AU58 is: Pop 18; 4 finer (PCGS # 8322) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,400.

Realized $4,888
