1803/2 $5 PCGS/CAC MS62

DLRC #: 975457 // PCGS #: 8084

Quite simply one of the most attractive Capped Bust Five Dollar pieces that we've seen in quite some time. Amazing luster, flashy yellow gold surfaces, and an outstanding strike are all highlights that make this coin appear far nicer than the actual grade. This Half Eagle would be an amazing choice for a top notch collection, despite the lower uncirculated grade. CAC approved for quality.
