$5 1806 AU 50 NGC
A distinct Turban Head variety due to the Knobbed 6 and obverse star arrangement, the 1806 B. 5-E is also the most plentiful early Half Eagle. This is good for both specialists and type collectors, as a certain amount of persistence will usually pay off with the location of a suitable example. Those focusing on the higher circulated grades need look no further than the present lot. This lightly worn example is overall bold in definition with no individually bothersome features among the scattered circulation marks. The color is nice and the strike is well centered on the planchet and boldly executed in most areas of the design. A coin that is sure to have no difficulty finding an eager buyer. There were 64,093 coins minted for this date.
