1834 Classic Head, Crosslet 4 Half Eagle, MS62
Rare Guide Book Variety

1834 $5 Crosslet 4 MS62 PCGS. Second Head, Crosslet 4, Breen-6503, McCloskey 5-D, R.4. One of the unsung rarities among gold coins from the 1830s, the Crosslet 4 is easily the most elusive of all major variety Classic half eagles. Its rarity is, in fact, more similar to the previous two designs from 1813-29 and 1829-34 than the Classic series. The surfaces on this exceptional Crosslet 4 are boldly detailed in virtually all areas, just falling short of completeness on some of Liberty's hair curls. Both sides exhibit splendid red-orange and green-gold color, and satiny luster that is affected only by trivial scuffiness in the fields. A coin of obvious importance to the early gold specialist. Population: 5 in 62, 2 finer (11/09).
