1830 $5 Capped Head. Small 5D. NGC graded MS-61. A frosty mint state coin that somehow escaped circulation and was preserved for todays collectors. Moderate handling marks are found in the fields, and a series of minor scrapes can be seen on Liberty's face and neck, but they are visible with a glass rather than on casual glance. Mint frost resides near the stars and peripheral devices, and the coin retains some of that wonderful mint bloom that entices the eye. Probably 50 known in all, with perhaps a dozen in various mint state grades. A coin that will never be available in any quantity, they simply no longer exist.

Realized $12,650
