1857-D $5 Lib PCGS AU53

Today’s mouth-watering coin is an 1857-D $5 Lib in PCGS AU 53.  This baby should be enough to make anyone turn “green” with envy. Green with envy … green-gold … well, I amuse myself anyway!

The 1857-D has a mintage of just 17,046 pieces, most of which have since been melted. This About Uncirculated yellow-gold survivor retains substantial detail. Only 26 are graded higher, and only 12% of all certified 57-D’s are mint state.
