Description 1855-O $5 AU50 NGC. Variety 1. Even borderline AU examples are rare, and especially so when the coin is original and attractive such as this AU50 representative. Mint luster remains among the prooflike areas surrounding the stars, legends, and central devices. Strong detail attends the motifs although the arrow feathers and eagle's neck show blending. Pleasing apricot-gold patina covers both sides of this minimally marked New Orleans rarity, which had a low mintage of just 11,100 pieces. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3290.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
