Sale 5

Lot 1295

1806 $5 Capped Bust. Round top 6. Sharpness of VF-20 but repaired and cleaned. The reeding above Liberty's cap is very weak, and we suspect that it might be a sign of repair work. Carefully cleaned and then retoned with copper colors in the fields and lighter devices. Well struck, but a touch weak on the shield lines and lower reverse. One to be inspected as this coin has a lovely appearance and will probably sell at a discount because of the reeding problem.

Realized $1,668
