$5 1804 SMALL 8 PCGS AU58
We not only consider this a great early $5, we call it FULL GEM AU! The surfaces are superb with a few ultra light lines/ticks only visible when using a strong glass. This is NOT a hacked up or lined coin. There are light traces of semi-prooflike mirrors. A blazing luster can be seen from all over. We do suspect this coin was lightly dipped long ago (it is NOT washed out). Both sides are a lovely brilliant gold color. There are no spots or discolorations. Miss Liberty and the details are frosty and are sharply struck. All wear is super light and is hard to find. The eye appeal is great! PCGS 32, NGC 6, CAC 8. No CAC’s have been sold at auction since 2014! You should note the last PCGS AU58 to sell in auction was a NON CAC. It brought $16,450.00 11/2015. The published prices are plain wrong for ALL Bust gold. We can’t stress enough how “in demand” pieces like this are-especially w/the CAC bean. Opportunity knocks loud here!
