    Significant 1834 Crosslet 4, No Motto Half Eagle MS62

    1834 $5 Crosslet 4 MS62 NGC. Second Head, Breen-6503, McCloskey 5-D, R.4. One of the unsung rarities among gold coins from the 1830s, the Crosslet 4 is easily the most elusive of all Classic Half Eagles. Its rarity is, in fact, more similar to the previous two designs from 1813-29 and 1829-34 than the Classic series. The surfaces on this exceptional Crosslet 4 are boldly detailed in virtually all areas, just falling short of completeness on some of Liberty's hair curls. Both sides exhibit splendid red-orange and green-gold color, and satiny luster that is affected only by trivial scuffiness in the fields. A coin of obvious importance to the early gold specialist. Population: 5 in 62, 1 finer (4/05).(#8172) (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25RU, PCGS# 8172)

    Weight: 8.36 grams
