    Finest Certified 1861 Clark, Gruber & Co. Five Dollar

    1861 $5 Clark, Gruber & Co. Five Dollar MS62 NGC. K-6, R.4. Both sides exhibit full, uninterrupted satiny luster. As has to be expected of the issue, noticeable softness can be found on Liberty's curls and down the center of the eagle. There is a pinpoint mark to the left of the ear and the reverse fields exhibit minor scuffiness, but these are particularly minor distractions when one considers the extreme rarity of 1861 Clark, Gruber & Co. half eagles at the Uncirculated level. An important high grade representative of this sought-after Pikes Peak gold issue, being one of just two Mint State pieces certified by both major services, this being the finer of the two. Census: 1 in 62, 0 finer (11/05). Listed on Page 363 of the 2006 Guide Book.
    From The Great Western Collection of Territorial Gold, Part Two.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 6HVG, PCGS# 10140)
