1856-D $5 Liberty. PCGS graded MS-63. An intensely lustrous beauty exhibiting rich golden sunset colors. The borders are nice and wide with most of the stars fully defined while the centeres are a trifle soft as made. Only 19,786 pieces minted.

The 1856-C is a rare half eagle delivery of the Charlotte Mint. The issue ranks sixth in overall ranking among the 24 deliveries in this series. The strike is about as one could realistically expect for a gold coin from this coinage facility. There are a few central areas where incompleteness of detail can be seen on both sides. Warm color as mentioned flows over soft, satiny luster. With none but the most trivial abrasions scattered about, this coin is markedly choicer than the typically offered Mint State survivor with many detracting marks. Pop 3; 3 in MS64. (PCGS # 8268) .
Estimated Value $17,000 - 19,000.
