1856 G$1 Upright 5 AU58 Certification #34377757, PCGS #7541

Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88)

The data shows that there were 85 appearances of the 1856 gold dollar with Upright 5, and 169 of the 1856 Slanting 5. This, of course, would seem to indicate that the Upright 5 variety is only about twice as rare as the Slanting 5 variety. This ratio does not match my own experience, however, and I would estimate that the Upright 5 variety is more likely five to ten times as rare.
