1858-C $2.50 Liberty. NGC graded MS-61. Only 9,056 minted. The coin that we are offering impresses us with its with virtually full star pattern and hair curls on the obverse and only a modicum of softness on the eagle's shield, neck, and leg feathers on the reverse. The luster is vibrant, being modestly frosty in finish with fields that shine through reddish gold patina. There are some marks on the face and in the field by the 4th and 4th stars on the obverse but well within the limitations of the MS61 grade level. Really a nice coin, and a premier condition rarity in the U.S. gold series. Pop 17; 13 in 62; 2 in 63. In a new NGC 4 pronged holder (PCGS # 7787) .
Estimated Value $6,000 - 6,500.

Realized $5,750
