Description 1852-C $5 -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. Variety 1. Light hairlines are visible under magnification, yet areas of prooflike surface remain beneath widespread mint frost. Otherwise, only a few minor abrasions disturb the fields, and the devices appear mark-free. This Charlotte issue is often weak at the centers, and some indistinct hair curls are seen on Liberty with a bit of blending on the eagle's neck feathers. The natural greenish-gold color remains softly lustrous, and the coin retains considerable appeal despite the cleaning. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2585.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
