1841-C $5 Liberty. NGC graded MS-61. NGC holder 1626152-047. Needle sharp strike with nice wide borders and loaded with luster. Lovely honey color gold. The fields somewhat granular around the stars and date (as minted). The 1841-C is one of the more frequently offered C-mint fives, at least in lower grades like Very Fine and Extremely Fine. However, in strict Mint State there are only a few believed known. This piece is squarely on the Condition Census list. As with most high grade survivors of this issue, this piece shows sharp detailing on each side, which explains one reason why these coins are so popular for mint-mark collecting purposes. The surfaces show numerous small abrasions, though, underlining the grade, though also expected from both the grade and the issue, while the fields have a semi-reflective sheen that is most appealing. Pop 4; 3 finer; 2 in 62; 1 in 64. (PCGS # 8203) .
Estimated Value $11,000 - 12,000.
