Description:
Elusive 1849 Norris, Gregg, & Norris Five Dollar
1849 Norris, Gregg, & Norris Five Dollar--Repaired--ANACS. AU Details, Net VF 30. We cannot be certain if this is a plain edge or reeded edge coin, but we assume it is a reeded edge piece since the period after ALLOY does not look like two periods, as described in the Kagin reference. It is generally assumed that N.G.& N. was the first firm to issue California private gold coins, beginning sometime in May 1849. Even in a repaired state such as this coin, a Norris, Gregg, and Norris five is a desirable coin and worthy of consideration by specialists. Apparently the field above the date has been repaired. The devices are well defined overall with the 5 on the shield still mostly present. The surfaces are bright orange-gold. Listed on page 287 of the 2003 Guide Book. (#10282) (PCGS# 10282)
