Lot 1953

1811 $5 Capped Draped Bust. Small 5. NGC graded MS-61. This lovely example from an extensive consignment of early half eagles has a Small 5 in the denomination, with this font continued in use for the 1812 half eagles. The reverse die of this variety, however, appears to be only one of its kind in this single variety and not used in later years. The reverse has a recut C in AMERICA. A full-blown lustrous Mint State example may qualify as one of the finer known of this die marriage. This Small 5 reverse is the same general style as reverse B of 1810, however, is not the same die. Pop 33; 68 finer.
Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.

Realized $10,925
