Here's my new $2.50 Classic Head. While there are 82 graded MS64 (37 by PCGS and 45 by NGC), the CAC pop is only 9. At this price point, you'd figure virtually all were submitted to CAC.

The following hotlink is safe, and should bring you to a "NuTilt" view, where YOU can control several aspects, including switching to the reverse. Have fun playing around.

Also shown are two slab shots.

I'm still on the hunt for an eye appealing $5 Classic Head, graded MS62 - MS64+ by PCGS with a CAC.

Stunning Classic $2.50 Steve, aside from some light marks and superficial copper spots it's about as nice as they get.

Thanks @GrapeCollects. As many know, CAC is very tough on gold, and the CAC pop for this "common" date in this grade is only 9 out of 82 in this grade. As such, while I'm not thrilled with some of the "distractions", the strike and luster are truly outstanding, much nicer than the strike and luster of others I've seen in this grade with a CAC.

I picked this Half Eagle up yesterday. So now my "Old" Gold consists of an 1834 Quarter Eagle, this 1835 Half Eagle, and an 1803 Eagle.

This coin is graded MS63 by PCGS, and has a CAC sticker. While the True View shows a large dark distracting area in the right obverse field, I was assured by the seller that this obverse photo clearly represents the coin in hand.
