    1834 Crosslet 4 Five-Dollar--A Famous Rarity in the Capped Bust Left Series

    1834 Capped Head MS 63 NGC. Crosslet 4. A very rare coin, one of the rarest of the entire Capped Head Left series. Breen estimates that only 14-18 pieces survive in all grades with XF being the median grade. According to Akers the Crosslet 4 1834 is rarer than the 1830 Small 5 D, 1831 Large 5 D, 1833 or 1834 Plain 4, and almost as rare as the 1830 Large 5 D.
    This is a select example that has bright orange-gold surfaces with the usual semi-reflective fields. Well defined in the centers, only at the margins does the coin show any traces of striking weakness with ill-defined radials on the obverse stars. There is hardly a mark on this coin--the only one that might be used for pedigree purposes being a tiny tick between the eagle's left (facing) wing and lower beak. Exceptional quality. Exceptional rarity. Population: 4 in 63, only 1 finer (11/97).
    Ex: Alex Shuford Collection (Kosoff, 5/68), lot 1964. (NGC ID# 25RP, PCGS# 8161)
