1855-C $2.50 Liberty. NGC graded AU-55. Mostly untoned. Better than average strike. Low mintage of 3,677. Pop 11; 22 finer. Dancing original luster still careens from the satiny, matte-like surfaces of this attractively greenish gold specimen. A blend of shades can be seen on both sides the main color predominates. The strike is somewhat spongy on the reverse at the eagle's shield and legs as well as along the crest of hair below LIBERTY, though the design elements are generally very acceptable for a coin from this branch mint. Choice rims, plus full dentils prove it to have been carefully handled since it first went into the hands of a coin collector (PCGS # 7775) .
Estimated Value $7,000 - 8,000.

Realized $7,763
