Description

Highly Lustrous and Colorful 1834 Classic Head
Five Dollar, MS64
, First Head, Breen-6501

1834 $5 Plain 4 MS64 PCGS. First Head, Breen-6501, McCloskey 3-C, R.5. A gorgeous pumpkin-gold and sea-green near-Gem with a remarkably smooth obverse. The reverse is nearly as clean, and has only a couple of unimportant grazes. The area near the BER in LIBERTY is incompletely brought up, but the strike is nonetheless better than often seen. At the moment, Classic half eagles are not widely collected by die marriage, even though the dies were formed by many individual punches similar to the half dollars of the era. This may change in the future, once a quality reference becomes available, and rare die marriages may become eagerly contested.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25RR, PCGS# 8171)
