Lot Details
1810 $5 Large Date, Large 5
BD-4, Breen-6459, Bass-3117, Miller-109, R.2. Details of Brilliant to Choice Uncirculated. This highly enticing, rich yellow-golden specimen exudes luxuriant satin-silk mint bloom on both the obverse and reverse. The strike is particularly assertive, with full definition on the hair curls, as well as in the shield and feathers on the reverse. Minor softness is seen in the obverse stars on the left side. In terms of sheer visual impact, a rival to this specimen would hard to locate. Even in terms of rarity, it is highly doubtful that there are more than a dozen or so examples of this Guide Book variety that are superior to this coin from the standpoint of technical, numerical grade. Accompanied with original paper envelope of purchase from Abe Kosoff, Encino, CA. Purchased as GEM UNC. (PCGS 8108)
