Description:
Exceptional Gem Uncirculated 1813 Five Dollar Gold
1813 $5 MS65 NGC. B. 1-A, Miller-119, R.3. The 1813 Half Eagle is important to collectors for two reasons. First, it is the initial year issue in the Capped Head Left series as modified by Robert Scot after John Reich's original concept. Second, it is by far the most affordable and obtainable date in the series, a series which few would dispute is the most difficult in all of U.S. numismatics. While the 1813 is relatively obtainable in circulated condition and lower Uncirculated grades, it is very elusive in the higher grades of Mint State. This is one of only four pieces to have been so graded with none finer at NGC, PCGS has seen two MS65s with one finer (2/05).
The striking details on this piece are uncommonly well defined on each side showing full definition on most of the stars, Liberty's hair, and the feathers on the eagle's neck. The rich green-gold mint luster is free from any major blemishes, with only a small mark or luster graze seen here and there. One lateral abrasion is visible on Liberty's nose, and a couple of small pinscratches are on the reverse from the right (facing) wingtip to the first A of AMERICA. No adjustment marks are reported on either side. Exceptional quality and one of the finest currently available.(#8116) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25PM, PCGS# 8116)
