    Description

    1855-C Gold Dollar, AU Details
    Sought-After Type Two Issue

    1855-C G$1 -- Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. Variety 2. The second 5 in the date is positioned right under the A in DOLLAR. This is a scarce early die state example without lapping on the upper left part of the wreath. The 1855-C dollar (9,803 coins struck) has a survival rate of 250 to 350 coins. However, they are always in extremely high demand as the only Charlotte Mint Type Two gold dollars. Yellow-gold surfaces with light high-point rub show scattered marks and clashing around the portrait. Slightly muted from cleaning.
