Lot 1956

1811 $5 Capped Draped Bust. Tall 5. NGC graded MS-60. Well struck and frosty. There are a few marks above the eagle. Otherwise, clean as a whistle for the modest grade, as one would look forward to in a coin fresh from this gentleman's consigned group of early $5 gold pieces. However, what really makes this break free from others is its frosty luster that rolls around each side. Broadly and well struck on the legends and main device, which is unusual, with a bold of detail at the centers. The Tall 5 in the denomination virtually touches the rim dentils and pretty much fills the space provided below the arrow's feather. Pop 9; 101 finer.
Estimated Value $7,500 - 8,000.

Realized $9,488
