Description

Choice 1860 Clark, Gruber Five

1860 $5 Clark, Gruber & Co. Five Dollar MS64 PCGS. K-2, R.4. Clark, Gruber & Co. was the most prominent of the Colorado private minters. The firm issued gold coins in four different denominations for two consecutive years, 1860 and 1861, but switched to the manufacture of rectangular ingots by 1862. The firm's operations were purchased by the Federal government in April, 1863, which used them as an assay office prior to the opening of a full-fledged branch mint in 1906.
This beautiful green-gold near-Gem has comprehensive luster and only minimal contact. Despite the high relief of the portrait, the strike is sharp throughout, save for minor blending on the curls near the ear. Listed on page 366 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 2 in 64, 2 finer (11/07).
From The Madison Collection. (PCGS# 10136)
