1856-D $5 Liberty. PCGS graded MS-61. Lightly toned and a nice strike. Winter 27-U. The 1856-D is another low mintage issue, and like its C-mint counterpart, is a very underrated and overlooked branch mint issue. Just 13-15 pieces are believed known in Almost Uncirculated grades with only 2-3 strictly Uncirculated coins believed extant today. While this piece is not fully struck, it is much better defined than most Dahlonega gold pieces. Only slight softness is seen on Liberty's hair curls, the eagle's neck, and the fletchings on the upper arrow. Soft, frosted mint luster covers each side of this pleasing, orange-gold specimen. Both sides are exceptionally clean with the only mentionable marks being a couple of very shallow cuts just above star 13. Only 19,786 coins minted. Pop 5; 16 finer. (PCGS # 8268) .
Estimated Value $9,000 - 10,000.
Ex Ashland City.

Realized $9,488
