Liberty $2.50 PCGS MS62 CAC - $28,950.00
for the finest graded at PCGS. Mint state survivors
are extremely rare, and public offerings of these
pieces especially so. As such, any offering of this
scarce Charlotte Mint issue in uncirculated conditions
should be especially considered by the specialist
of gold coinage struck at this Southern Mint.

Of the total mintage,
only 80 to 90 pieces are known in all grades, with
just a few of these remaining in any uncirculated
condition. Even AU pieces are scarce, although they
are found with some regularity. This can absolutely
not be said of pieces which have been graded Mint
State by any of the major grading companies.
Population numbers are low, no doubt
also influenced by resubmissions, and public offerings
are seldom seen. Breen considered this issue to be very
rare, with an addition remark ‘Extremely rare
in EF”. AU and Mint State survivors were not even
mentioned in his Encyclopedia, published in 1988.
With light yellow color, this piece
is near the top of the condition census for this issue.
The strike is better than usually seen, with the stars
showing near full peripheral lines. Further to that,
the fields are not as abraded as would be expected
for the grade. Full, satiny luster, typical for the
issue is seen on both sides, and is quite a pleasure
to look at. A rare and important opportunity for the
specialist of Southern gold coins, an era of American
numismatics which has seen increasing popularity and
prices during the last few years.
