1856-C $2.50 Liberty. NGC graded MS-60. Only 7,913 minted. Normal soft strike. Scarce in Mint State. Pop 5; 4 in 61, 1 in 63. 1 in 64. This is the second of two 1856-C examples and a solid Mint State 60 locked into an embrace of golden-brown toning around the main devices. What we notice first off is the refreshingly unabraded surfaces with a relatively crisp strike that belies the reputation of the Charlotte Mint for having unduly mushy coins. The luster is slightly reduced in the high points, but this grade is highly unusual for any Charlotte Mint piece. With only 7,913 minted, few survive in Mint condition (PCGS # 7778) .
Estimated Value $10,000 - 11,000.

Realized $11,500
