1835 $5.00 NGC AU58 CAC

The 1835 is many times scarcer than the 1834 Plain 4 although it sells for just a small premium. This very choice example is fully original with choice surfaces, a good strike and pleasing russet color that becomes iridescent as the surfaces are tilted towards a light source. I was able to acquire a few very nice CAC-approved Classic Head half eagles at the Philly ANA show and these are far, far nicer than usual for the grade.

CAC has approved fourteen in this grade with just four higher than this.
