    1885 $5 Five Dollar, Judd-1754, Pollock-1967, R.8, PR65 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular issue design for the With Motto Liberty half eagle. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Only two specimens are known of this R.8 pattern. This piece was in the fabled King Farouk collection.

    1. Ex: Palace Collections of Egypt (Sotheby's, 1954), lot 2014; Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2004), lot 6428, PR64 Cameo PCGS; Franklinton Collection, Part II (Stack's, 1/2008), lot 1206. The present specimen.
    2. Ex: King of Siam Sale (Bowers & Merena, 10/1987), lot 2258; Auction ' '88 (Superior, 10/1988), lot 293; Auction '90 (Superior, 8/1990), lot 1461; Jones Beach Collection, FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2007), lot 1626.

    The surfaces are bright and highly reflective with thick mint frost over the devices. This particular example is easily distinguished from the other piece by the presence of a planchet lamination between the TE in UNITED and the eagle's left (facing) wing.
