Description

Lustrous 1836 McCloskey 2-B Half Eagle, MS64
Possibly the Finest of the Variety

1836 $5 MS64 PCGS. Second Head, Breen-6509, McCloskey 2-B. The obverse has a bisecting die crack through the 6 and bust to star 8 and the border. This die combination is quite scarce, and the present coin is only the 14th example in any of our auctions since 1993. It is also far above the grade of any previous appearance, with AU58 the best we have handled before. Aside from the usual light weakness at the center of the obverse, all design definition is boldly defined. Both sides have brilliant yellow-gold luster with a hint of orange. A few trivial surface marks on each side are consistent with the grade.
From The Milford Collection.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25RY, PCGS# 8174)
