    1834 Capped Head Five
    Crosslet 4, BD-2 Variety

    1834 $5 Capped Head, Crosslet 4 Genuine PCGS. Breen-6500, BD-2, R.5. The PCGS number ending in .95 suggests scratch, rim dent as the reason, or one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, this coin has the details of an AU specimen that has been scratched and cleaned. The BD-2 variety is recognized by the Crosslet 4 in the date positioned only halfway under the incomplete curl.
    The 1834 Capped Bust half eagle is known in four different varieties, all very scarce-to-extremely rare. The BD-2 is the variety most often seen, with an estimated surviving population of 45-55 examples in all grades. This coin retains much original detail and shows extensive die cracks on both sides. A long, thin scratch in the left obverse field and some unnatural surface toning are evident as well.(Registry values: P6, N6) (NGC ID# 25RP, PCGS# 8161)
