    Sharp 1825/1 Five Dollar

    1825/1 $5 MS61 NGC. Ex: Reed. Breen-6483, BD-1, High R.5. David Akers, in his United States Gold Coins: An Analysis of Auction Records, places the number of extant 1825/1 half eagles at between 35 and 40 pieces, and are mostly in XF or AU grades. A total of 20 coins have, to date, been graded by NGC and PCGS.
    This MS61 specimen displays a blend of yellow-gold and apricot-gold color with decent luster. A powerful strike manifests itself in sharp definition on the design elements, that are well centered on the planchet. The surfaces exhibit prooflike tendencies, especially when the piece is rotated under a light source. Some wispy hairlines in the reverse fields are mentioned for accuracy. Census: 4 in 61, 3 finer (11/06).(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# BFY6, PCGS# 8133)

    Weight: 8.75 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
