1856 Gold Dollar MS63 PCGS CAC, Slanted 5 Variety. The gold dollars of 1856 were struck in Slanted 5 (sometimes also called Italic 5) and Upright 5 variants, with the Slanted 5 seen a bit more frequently. There is not a great deal of price differentiation except for the highest Mint State grades, however. This example boasts highly lustrous canary-yellow surfaces that show minimal field chatter consistent with the grade. CAC Population: 24 in 63, 26 finer (9/2019).
