    Description

    1850-C $5 -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. Variety 1. This is a bold mintmark variety, seen here with the usual radial die crack from the U in UNITED into the olive leaves. Although lightly cleaned in the past, this AU-level coin now displays appealing orange-gold color and has hints of luster in the protected portions of the fields. Some strike weakness and wear are noted on the eagle's left (facing) leg.
