VERY CHOICE CAC APPROVED 1853-C GOLD DOLLAR

The 1853-C is at least twice as scarce as the 1851-C gold dollar yet it sells for just a small premium. The 1853-C is hard to locate in the AU50 to AU55 grade range and most examples have been cleaned or brightened at ne time.

This example has never been offered to collectors before as I bought it, raw, from a family who had owned it for many generations. The surfaces are clean and lustrous with thick overlaying green-gold and reddish hues which are indicative of absolute originality. Were the strike just a touch sharper at the central obverse, I believe this coin would have graded at least AU55.

Only one PCGS AU53 1853-C gold dollar has been offered for sale at auction since 2005 and it realized $2,300 as Heritage 3/08: 1340.

If you are looking for a really nice Type One gold dollar from the Charlotte mint, this is the coin you’ve been waiting for.

CAC has approved this one example in AU53 with 10 finer.
