1857-C $5
Struck in bright yellow-gold with ample luster in the fields and minimal circulation marks. The strike is generally sharp and the color is pleasing. In fact, the fields impart a partially reflective appearance as the coin is turned under a light. For identification, a single small milling mark is on Liberty's lower jaw and the coin has been cleaned at one time. One of just 31,360 pieces struck at Charlotte.
