Description 1856-C $5 AU58+ NGC. CAC. Variety 1. A coin with wholly original surfaces and excellent eye appeal, this AU58 example is a mere whisper from Uncirculated as recognized by the NGC Plus designation. The natural green-gold color displays light-orange and lilac overtones over the boldly struck surfaces. Nearly full mint luster remains. Minor roughness in the lower left obverse field from die rust is noted, along with a small planchet flaw beneath stars 8 and 9. This coin is the sole AU58 example to earn the Plus designation from NGC, where just 13 coins are certified numerically finer by the service (8/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $10575.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
