    1811 Tall 5 Half Eagle MS64

    1811 $5 Tall 5 MS64 PCGS. Breen-6463, B. 1-A, Miller-115, R.4. This boldly struck and nicely lustrous example is void of adjustment marks, and the appearance is pleasing to the naked eye. Rich honey-gold toning adds to its charm. Close examination beneath a loupe detects a few thin marks, above the eye and on the reverse at 6 and 12 o'clock. The Tall 5 variety is one of two die pairings known for the date. It is considered slightly scarcer than the Small 5, although both are highly desirable in better Mint State grades. An early die state without clash marks, which are sometimes present on examples of Breen 1-A above the date and near the eagle's beak.
