Lot Details
1808 $5, Wide 5 D
BD-4, High R.3. Quite well struck with subtly reflective fields and hints of reddish-golden toning. Some light chatter marks are noted in the left obverse field. A worthy candidate for an early U.S. gold type set. 1808 was a pivotal year in American history. The two-term President Thomas Jefferson, following the lead of his predecessor, George Washington, declined to run for a third term in office. The baton went to his long-time friend and revolutionist, James Madison who won the election of 1808 handily. (PCGS 8102) Very Fine to Extremely Fine
