||1856-C $5 AU53 NGC. CAC. All of the 1856 branch mint issues are scarce and desirable, with the Charlotte production represented by relatively few original and attractive coins above XF condition. This AU53 example displays olive-gold coloration and glowing orange accents where mint luster resides beneath the natural patina. A number of small marks defines the technical grade, but strong detail remains despite the moderate circulation. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
