    K-4 1849 Moffat & Co. Five Dollar
    Rare MS62 Representative

    1849 $5 Moffat & Co. Five Dollar MS62 NGC. K-4, R.5. Moffat & Co. was one of the earliest and most highly respected assay firms in Gold Rush California, producing ingots of uniform size (the famous and rare $16.00 ingots) as well as small-denomination Federal-imitative Territorial gold pieces. This is an unmarked straw-gold five dollar representative that has strong eye appeal. Made from clashed dies, it is sharply struck for a territorial gold piece, although the curls near the ear are slightly soft. The luster is bright and softly frosted throughout. A subtle surface disturbance is noted close to the dentils above the first A in CALIFORNIA. Listed on page 376 of the 2013 Guide Book.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# ANJ5, PCGS# 10240)
