1849-C G$1 Closed Wreath NGC AU55

DLRC #: 86865 // PCGS #: 7505

Struck on a pale, green-gold planchet. Despite spending some time in circulation, this piece is clean and retains ample mint luster to support the grade. Small contact mark by the fifth star. Minted after the exceedingly rare 1849-C Open Wreath, if die deliveries can be relied upon. The dies for the Open Wreath were sent to Charlotte on June 10th and 13th; those for the Closed Wreath were not sent until July. Mintage for the Closed Wreath variety was limited to 11,634 coins.
