Exceedingly Rare 1833 Half Eagle, MS62 PCGS1833 $5 Large Date MS62 PCGS. B. 2-B, Miller-168, R.5. Very rare, as are both date variants, with the Large Date variety the more "common" of the two, representing perhaps 60-70% of the surviving examples. The date is widely spaced with the period distant to the right of the D on the reverse.
The fields are bright with a strong semi-prooflike gleam. The devices are somewhat irregularly struck with some areas absolutely full, and others noticeably soft. A curving die crack is seen from the rim through star 1 down through the 1 of the date and back to the rim. This can be used as a future identifier. The rich green-gold color of the coin has taken on a light accent of reddish patina, and there are only small abrasions scattered across each side. Population: 3 in 62, 6 finer (3/04). (#8157) (NGC ID# 25RJ, PCGS# 8157)
