1859-C $5 XF40 PCGS
Despite an original mintage (31,847 pieces) that is similar to that of the 1857-C and 1858-C, the 1859-C is scarcer in all grades, and considerably so in high grades. This typically worn example is evenly colored in sandy-gold shades. The strike is overall soft, particularly on the reverse, but the surfaces are quite smooth despite the time spent in circulation. One lateral pin scratch is noted across the obverse under close examination. Both the date and the C mintmark, however, are clearly discernible. (PCGS 8281)
