1850-D $5 Liberty. Weak D. NGC graded AU-58. Specialists in the No Motto Half Eagle series will immediately recognize the importance of this rarity, especially in such high grade. Technicalities aside, this specimen also has a very nice look. It is well struck, except for the mintmark of course, with above average surfaces. Light russet tone handsomely frames the design providing excellent eye appeal. Breen-6588, "Prohibitively rare above EF." A die break begins at the D of the denomination and continues left along the tops of the letters to the E of States. Pop only 3 pieces, with none higher.
Estimated Value $7,000 - 7,500.

Realized $5,463
