    Description

    1806 Knobbed 6 Five Dollar, AU55
    BD-6, Spectacularly Toned

    1806 $5 Round Top 6, 7x6 Stars AU55 NGC. CAC. BD-6, R.2. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/b. The die state shows minor clashing in the left reverse field below the clouds and between the stars. Although BD-6 is the most common variety of all Draped Bust Large Eagle coins, this particular example certainly ranks among the finest pieces in terms of its aesthetic merits. Orange-gold interiors progress to amazing shades of golden-brown, violet, and gunmetal-blue patina at the borders. The effect is absolutely mesmerizing and further enhanced by the presence of luminous luster within the recesses. The motifs are well struck with grade-consistent friction over the high points. Roller marks occur diagonally from northwest to southeast over Liberty's portrait, and abrasions are lightly scattered throughout.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
