    1855-C Gold Dollar, AU53
    Only Charlotte Type Two Issue

    1855-C G$1 AU53 NGC. From a meager mintage of 9,803 pieces, the 1855-C is the only Type Two gold dollar from the Charlotte Mint. The 1855-C was not a well-produced issue and few examples were saved by collectors, making the issue quite elusive in high grade condition. This attractive AU53 example shows only light wear on the design elements, which exhibit the typical strike for this issue, with dramatic clash marks on both sides. The reddish-gold surfaces retain traces of original mint luster and exhibit the expected number of minor abrasions for the grade. Census: 32 in 53, 93 finer (12/19).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 25C5, PCGS# 7533)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
