Description & Analysis

the 1852-C is widely recognized as one of the more 'common' issues among Charlotte fives, its rarity and importance cannot be overstated in near-gem condition. Charlotte and Dahlonega gold coins were used extensively in the channels of commerce at the time of issuance, and are not generally available in mint condition.
