The 1855-C is numismatically significant as the only Type Two gold dollar from the Charlotte mint. It is also one of only two one-year types from this mint along with the 1839-C half eagle. The 55-C gold dollar is seen most often in EF40 to AU50 and properly graded AU53 coins are scarce.

This fresh-to-the-market example is better struck than usual and is found on an above-average quality planchet. As with many examples, there are clashmarks and some areas of roughness but the natural green-gold surfaces are more solid and eye appealing than usual for the issue. The date and mintmark are bold and the borders show nearly full detail.

The last two APR’s for PCGS AU53′s are $7,931 in the June 2014 Goldberg sale (lot 1656) and $7,638 in Heritage’s June 2013 sale (as Lot 4694).

Nice quality for this issue and a coin with multiple levels of demand.
