    1843-C Five Dollar, MS62
    Rarely Seen in Uncirculated

    1843-C $5 MS62 PCGS. Variety 1. The 1843-C has finally been recognized as a scarce issue. Still, lower-grade examples can be located with little difficulty up to About Uncirculated. However, AU pieces are scarce and Uncirculated examples are rare with only 10 pieces estimated known. The strike on this piece is typical for the issue with soft details in the centers. The thick, frosty mint luster is pronounced and unbroken over each side with only small, insignificant abrasions present, unlike the heavily abraded examples usually seen. Rich yellow-gold color is seen throughout. Population: 5 in 62, 5 finer (11/19).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 429H, PCGS# 8214)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
