$5 1837 PCGS MS64+
OMG! This coin is so the real deal. We’d rank it MS 64.8+++ every time! In full MS65 these are so exceedingly rare.
Outstanding surfaces are smooth and clean. Only on the reverse is there a small scuff/frost break that you can see with a glass (which is all that we can find that keeps it from MS65). This coin oozes with as much originality as we have ever seen. It looks like it was carefully stored for a very long time. A moderate glowing luster beams from all over. Both sides enjoy a rich and totally original deep gold with pale greenish gold highlights. There are NO discolorations or spots. The eye appeal is terrific!
PCGS 7, NGC 5, CAC 4. This is the lone MS64+ graded by PCGS . PCGS has possibly graded only 2 coins higher. There is NO record of this MS64+ selling in auction. It is critical to note: an MS65 (NON CAC) sold for $100,625.00 way back in 2010. ALL posted numbers for this coin are in correct. The rarity of this date and higher in this grade is extreme. If a PCGS CAC MS65 were ever to show up, it would sell for $125,000.00+ today.
If you are trying to build a GEM set, this coin is a perfect fit!
