Lot 1312

1823 $5 Capped Head. PCGS graded MS-61. One of just 4 graded as MS 61 with 10 graded higher (MS 64 highest) according to the recent Population Report by PCGS. The surfaces show minor hairlines and a scattering of tick marks, none heavy or really even noticeable. Well struck on the devices and with nice eye-appeal for the grade. Tough to find better, and if you do, it will be a lot more expensive. If you want a lot of value for your collecting dollar, then look no further than this coin. Only 14,485 struck, with probably fewer than 100 that survived today, perhaps only 50, which makes it downright available for a type date of the capped head to left half eagles.

Realized $11,213
