    Description

    1854-C $5 Weak C VF30 NGC. Variety 2. Although the Charlotte mintmark was lightly entered into the working die, and thus has low relief, it is well outlined and unmistakable when viewed beneath a glass. All examples of Variety 2, with the mintmark over the E instead of the V in FIVE, have a similarly weak mintmark. A midgrade sea-green and orange-gold half eagle that has one thin mark each on the cheek and forehead.
    From The Virginia Cabinet. (NGC ID# 25UJ, Variety PCGS# 98257, Base PCGS# 8257)

    Weight: 8.36 grams
