1841-D $5 Liberty. Small D. NGC graded MS-61. The 1841-D is one of the more readily found Dahlonega fives in circulated grades, up to and including a couple dozen pieces in About Uncirculated, but only a few Uncirculated coins are known. Possibly fewer than 10 examples believed extant in Mint State. This is a solid Condition Census coin that exhibits smooth luster, the fields being shimmering and showing prooflike tendency with eye appeal attributed to the faint yellow-gold tint. The devices show virtually complete detail on both sides, even sharper than is often the case with this traditionally well made half eagle. Clear repunching on the date is further evidence of an early die state. In effect, not a single short-coming to speak of, a coin of vigor and graded with the strictness found on NGC-graded gold. A memorable specimen! Pop 6; 12 finer; 5 in 62; 4 in 63; 1 in 64; 2 in 65. (PCGS # 8204) .
Estimated Value $10,000 - 11,000.

Realized $12,650
