    1855-C Gold Dollar, XF40
    Rare One-Year Charlotte Type Coin

    1855-C G$1 XF40 PCGS Secure. Variety 2. Longacre's Type Two design was not in service for long. Philadelphia struck the type in both 1854 and 1855, while San Francisco struck the final issue in 1856. New Orleans, Charlotte, and Dahlonega each coined the design only during 1855. The 1855-C has a meager mintage of 9,803 pieces, and is in demand as the sole C-mint Type Two representative. The present wheat-gold example exhibits minimal contact. The moderately circulated surfaces display clash marks and occasional microgranularity, usual for the issue.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 25C5, PCGS# 7533)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
