1845-D $5 Liberty. PCGS graded MS-61. Well struck and nicely toned. A small mark on Liberty's face and a light obverse scratch. Attractively lustrous with satiny surfaces with lovely fresh golden iridescence. Much original surface is seen with very little in the way of marks other than the one mentioned; particularly is this so on the reverse. An elusive example of the date and mint. In general, Dahlonega Mint pieces are notorious for their unavailability in Mint State, the ultimate business strike classification.

On this specimen, a fine reverse die crack runs horizontally across the bottoms of ERICA, then to the tops of FIVE D, then crossing the center of U in UNITED, terminating at the second upright of that letter. Pop 8; 6 finer (PCGS # 8224) .
Estimated Value $7,000 - 7,500.

Realized $8,050
