Newp very scarce 1842 Large Letters $5.00 PCGS AU-50

I don't get golden Newps too often!
1842 Large Letters PCGS-AU-50 Population 27 in all grades, 10 finer. Total population 20 at NGC.
One of the most undervalued all Lib $5.00s. I was very happy to find a coin with good color and luster. It is a bit marked, but nothing too deep. This issue shows up slightly over once a year. Many of these are stripped of color and are either baggy or not lustrous. The 1842 Small Letters is the other variety of this year and it is on the scarce side also. Glad a good one came up this year!
