Lot 1293

1803/2 $5 Capped Bust. Sharpness of EF-40 but probably repaired on the edge. The edge appears to have been carefully repaired over Liberty's cap, LIBERT and on the reverse over AMER, perhaps to remove some rim bumps, but most of the reeding is still intact. Minor adjustment marks are noted on the reverse hidden by the dentils. A glass will note some surface scratches, including a long shallow scratch in the left obverse field, but none are deep or offensive. Cleaned and retoned to a normal appearing gold color. The design elements are sharp and well defined. As with so much of this early gold, it often has some degree of problems. Be sure to inspect this one before bidding.

Realized $1,553
