1853-C $5.00 NGC AU50

This example has the exact look that I really like on a Southern branch mint coin: dark, deep russet and green-gold splashes with plenty of dirt seen in the protected areas. There isn't any luster to speak of but this is primarily on account on the depth of the color. There is a small hairline in the left obverse field and a tiny rim mark at 4:00 that appears to be of mint origin. Good value at less than $3,000.
