Description

1872 Five Dollar, AU55, Only 1,660 Struck
No Business Strike in the Smithsonian

1872 $5 AU55 NGC. The mintage for circulation strike 1872 fives was a mere 1,660 pieces. Predictably, few high-grade examples have survived, and of the ones that have, they invariably show prooflike or semiprooflike fields. That is certainly the case on this example. The bright flash from the fields is barely subdued by the numerous small handling marks scattered over each side. The strike is a bit weak on the central device high points, but there are no singularly mentionable detractions on this rarity. Census: 4 in 55, 9 finer (2/11).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25WF, PCGS# 8325)
