    Description

    1862 Five Dollar, AU50
    Blatantly Original Coloration

    1862 $5 AU50 NGC. A well-detailed AU example, showing light chatter in the fields and rich orange-gold coloration. Tiny flashes of prooflike mirroring appear in the protected peripheral areas when tilted beneath a light, while microscopic bits of verdigris in the dentils affirm the originality of the surfaces. The 1862 half eagle boasts a mintage of only 4,465 pieces, and surviving examples are elusive in all grades. Census: 1 in 50, 32 finer (7/19).
    From The Poulos Family Collection, Part II. (Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 25VP, PCGS# 8292)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
