Upright 5 variety.  1856-P gold dollars are known with Upright 5 and Slanting 5 date logotypes. The former is considerably scarcer than the latter and it is a very difficult issue to locate in MS64 and above.

This very frosty example has rich yellow-gold color on the obverse and reverse with just a few scuffs in the left obverse field keeping it from a higher grade. The strike is typical for the variety with some slight weakness at the centers and at the top of the Indian’s crown.

There are only three APR’s for this variety in MS64 since 2008 and the last is $3,220 for a PCGS MS64+ in March 2011.

This is a nice example of a scarce, undervalued Type Three gold dollar.

CAC has approved just this one example in MS64 with only a single coin finer (an MS65).
