Description

    1857-C $5 XF 40 PCGS. A pleasing, wholly original example of this C-mint issue, with greenish-gold surfaces that are typically abraded for the issue. This piece appears to have been struck from a very late die state, as the obverse die is nearly buckled. Several ridges and depressions are visible under magnification in the obverse fields. Although this issue is relatively common for the Charlotte mint, uncleaned specimens are becoming more difficult to locate as more coins are dipped and stripped of their original surfaces in efforts to get them certified at higher grades. (NGC ID# 25V3, PCGS# 8272)
