1812 $5 Capped Draped Bust. Miller 117, Breen-1A, Large Date, Close 5D. NGC graded MS-65. A gem example of the popular Capped Bust type. Frosty, lustrous surfaces and a sunny, yellow color. Boldly struck details. Tied with 9 others as the finest graded by NGC (doubtless, with some duplication). The only finer example is a PCGS MS-66, offered in the 1999 issue of Coin World for $175,000 (you can buy this one for less)! For a comparable piece, we note that the Bass coin realized $35,650 when it reappeared on the market in 2002 (then in a PCGS MS-65 holder).
Estimated Value $35,000 - 40,000.

Realized $40,250
