    1835 Five Dollar, MS61
    Script 8, McCloskey 3-D

    1835 $5 MS61 NGC. Breen-6505, McCloskey 3-D, R.3. Second Head. Classic half eagles are more readily obtained than their old tenor predecessors, but Mint State pieces are undeniably scarce. This butter-gold representative displays luster throughout the motifs and margins. The strike is crisp, and no marks are of singular import. Eight die marriages of 1835 half eagles are confirmed, but McCloskey 3-D is quickly identified by its Script 8 and eagle's tongue.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25RV, PCGS# 8173)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 89.92% Gold, 10.08% Copper
