Variety 1. Normal mintmark.

The 1853-C is comparable in rarity to the 1852-C but much, much scarcr than the 1851-C. There were 11,515 struck and a few hundred are known with most in the EF40 to AU53 range. In Uncirculated, the 1853-C is a rare issue with around two dozen known.

This lightly worn, lustrous example shows a typical strike for the isue with some incomplete detail on the obverse; the reverse is sharper. The color is a rich yellow-gold with splashes of coppery red at the central reverse. There are no marks of note on either side and the eye appeal is above-average for the grade.

The last NGC AU58 to sell at auction was Heritage 8/12: 4394, which brought $2,938. The present example is, in my opinion, a decidely nicer example.
