    Mint State 1842 Five, Scarce Large Letters Variety

    1842 $5 Large Letters Half Eagle MS61 Obverse Scratch SEGS (MS61 Obverse Scratch). A more elusive variety than its Small Letters counterpart, the 1842 Large Letters is seldom offered in AU, and Mint State coins are even rarer. This BU representative displays modest semi-prooflike tendencies in the fields with sharply impressed, green-gold and orange-gold colors. A bisecting obverse scratch is noted over Liberty's portrait.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25SU, PCGS# 8206)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
