Description:
Splendid AU58 1811 Tall 5 Half Eagle
1811 $5 Tall 5 AU58 PCGS. Breen-6463, BD-1, High R.3. There are only two die marriages for the 1811, the Tall 5 and the Small 5. These are roughly equal in scarcity, although the Tall 5 is considered slightly more elusive. The billowy mint luster is nearly full, broken only across the open fields. A hint of friction on the chin betrays momentary circulation, or perhaps this piece was gently mishandled by an appreciative owner long ago. Surprisingly unabraded, although a small mint-made planchet defect is present near the mouth. Thorough scrutiny locates a couple of trivial adjustment marks on the bust truncation. The upper edge of the scroll is incompletely brought up, but the strike is otherwise impressively sharp. Clashed near the eagle's beak. Population: 8 in 58, 29 finer (9/06).(Registry values: P2) (PCGS# 8110)
