Owner Comments:

Second Head, Large Date, Breen-6509, McCloskey 4-D, R.2. As of (6/09), this is the only 1836 half eagle to receive a Prooflike designation from NGC, and was presumably among the first examples struck by the McCloskey 4-D dies. It is well struck and flashy with only one consequential abrasion, located beneath the O in OF.
