1855-C $2.50 Liberty. PCGS graded AU-55. Nice orange toning. A nice orange gold toned piece with notable luster throughout. It is easy to see this piece was delivered a insufficient blow by the dies, or as some researchers believe, the dies were used past their normal termination, which imparted their worn condition to the struck planchet. Stars are mainly flat, though much of Liberty's hair and hair bun shows clear detail. The eagle with typical strike weakness only on the lower half of the body affecting the legs, talons, and top feather of the arrows. Low mintage: only 3,677 coins minted. Pop 13; 11 finer; 7 in 58; 2 in 61; 2 in 62. (PCGS # 7775) .
Estimated Value $7,000 - 8,000.

Realized $7,475
