The legendary rarity of the 1849-C Open Wreath gold dollar. The romantic end of the series as the final 1861-C half eagles were struck by the Confederacy. In between, there are rarities galore of differing degrees, such as the 1843-C Small Date quarter eagle, the 1842-C Small Date half eagle or the 1855-C Type Two gold dollar, to name but a few. This historic Mint met the same end as that of Dahlonega, in that both were captured by the Confederacy during the Civil War and never reopened. Today, collectors from across the country remember this tumultuous time through the magnificent coins of the Charlotte Mint.
