    1834 Crosslet 4 Classic Five
    Choice XF, Key Philly Issue

    1834 $5 Crosslet 4 XF45 NGC. Breen-6503, McCloskey 5-D, R.4. Second Head. The Crosslet 4 variety is unquestionably the stopper to a Guide Book set of Philadelphia Mint Classic fives. NGC has certified fewer than 100 pieces, and many of those are resubmissions. Only a single die marriage, McCloskey 5-D, has a Crosslet 4. The reverse die later struck 1835 McCloskey 1-A, which suggests that the Crosslet 4 variety was struck near the end of that year. This Choice XF example displays moderate wear on the curls, cheek, and forehead, but luster accompanies protected areas, and the pale gold surfaces are without any distracting abrasions.(Registry values: P3)
