||1845-D $5 XF45 NGC. CAC. Variety 13-H. Orange accents enhance the apricot-gold patina of this Choice XF Dahlonega five. Much of the bold strike remains visible on the eagle's wings, leg feathers, and on Liberty's hair curls. Two die pairs are known for the issue, identified by the position of the date. This example is the more common variety with the date high and left beneath the bust truncation. A single horizontal abrasion in Liberty's hair above the ear is the most noticeable mark. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
