V-5 Repunched Date, Ex. Benson Collection, Reflective Cartwheel Luster, Rich Aquamarine Gold Patina, Fully Struck, Accurately Grade. Ex. Benson Collection. V-5 Repunched Date. Bold repunching of the 1845 digits is the hallmark of the V-5 die pairing. This specimen also has the long reverse die crack from (O)F down through H(A)LF into (D)IME. Surfaces are smooth with reflective cartwheel luster under a light source. Rich aquamarine-gold toning covers the obverse while the reverse is light gray with some peripheral aquamarine toning that carries over from the obverse. Completely stuck with high relief stars. Worthy of the Benson Collection pedigree (early 2000 sale by the Goldbergs) and listed on the PCGS label. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert that dates back to the late 1990s. December 1969
