1806 Knobbed 6 $5.00 NGC EF45

BD-6. Rarity-2. It is actually harder to find early gold in lower "collector grades" (i.e, VF and EF) than it is in the higher "investor grades" and this is due to the fact that these issues tended not to circulate heavily. Nice EF Bust Right half eagles are always popular and this EF45 should generate a good degree of interest, especially because there is no date premium for this issue. The surfaces show even natural deep green-gold color with some dirt in the protected areas and there are no major disturbances other than an old scrape in the right obverse field. The 1806 Knobbed 6 is perhaps the most available Bust Right half eagle in all grades and it is a perfect choice for a type collector or for a collector with good taste but a limited budget.
