    A very exciting and beautiful rarity! One of the most celebrating type coins of all US gold issues, the Capped Head (facing left) $5 gold pieces are unbelievably scarce in any mint state grade. This present example is the rare 5D/50 variety with blundered reverse die showing D of denomination over erroneous 0. Bold definition and pleasing luster grace the attractive green-gold surfaces of this select specimen. Fresh to the market, this is a very difficult to locate date, no matter the variety and even more special as the elusive 5D/50 issue.
