1849-C. Closed Wreath. PCGS graded AU-58 PQ. CAC Approved. Only 11,634 minted of which merely 150 examples are estimated to have survived. Mostly untoned with lots of luster.

On June 10 and on June 13, die pairs for 1849-C gold dollars were shipped from the Philadelphia Mint (where dies for branch mints were made) to Charlotte. On July 10, two more reverses were sent. Most probably, the shipment of June 10 had the "old" reveres with open wreath, as used on Philadelphia Mint coins earlier in the year, but in this instance with a tiny C mintmark, creating the 1849-C Open Wreath of which just five specimens are known today. From the other dies were made the 1849-C Closed Wreath, to the extent of the aforementioned 11,634 pieces, a quantity just about half of that of the next smallest production, that of the Dahlonega Mint, and but a tiny fraction of that registered at Philadelphia. Pop 12; 17 finer (PCGS # 7505) .
Estimated Value $3,500 - 3,800.
The William H & Beuelaress K. Helem Collection.

Realized $10,206
