Description:
1850-D Five Dollar, AU55
Variety 23-O With a Strong Mintmark
1850-D $5 AU55 PCGS. CAC. Variety 23-O. The obverse has a tall date with the 1 close to the bust and the border. The reverse has the mintmark high over VE, with its left serif joined to the feather and its upper right curve separated from the branch. The other obverse, number 24, has the top of the 1 lightly joined to the bust, with the bottom left foot well above the border. There appears to be only one reverse but two die states. The 23-O is normally associated with a weak mintmark, but that is not the case with this coin. It also lacks the heavy peripheral die cracks seen on this variant.
This pleasing Choice AU has lovely greenish yellow-gold luster with deeper patina in the fields on both sides. The strike is weak in the centers, as usual, and the surfaces have no mentionable abrasions. Population: 15 in 55, 10 finer (11/10).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25U3, PCGS# 8245)
