    1849 Mormon Half Eagle, MS63 Brown
    Uniface Copper Restrike, K-3a

    1849 $5 Mormon Five Dollar, Uniface Copper Restrike, Plain Edge, K-3a, R.8, MS63 Brown NGC. Plain Edge (listed as reeded edge in Don Kagin's series reference). The mostly brown and crimson surfaces of this Select specimen show a few hints of original red in selected areas. Some interesting die rust marks are evident (not surprising considering the dies were 50 years old when they were used for this striking). The design elements are well-struck overall. Similar in design to that of the quarter eagle die.
    Ex: ANA Convention Auction (Kagin's, 8/1983), lot 3668.
