Liberty Head - 1847 C Five Dollar MS

Gold was discovered in North Carolina at the end of the 18th century, but a more extensive find in 1828 near Dahlonega displaced the Cherokee and sent thousands of prospectors into the region.  By 1830 local assayers began to produce gold coins in Georgia and North Carolina in order to simplify transactions.  On March 3, 1835, Congress authorized new mint facilities at Dahlonega, Charlotte and New Orleans to take advantage of these finds and reduce transportation costs.

Liberty Head Type 1 Gold Dollar 1849-1854. The 1849 version of this coin actually has two different varieties. One with an open wreath and one with it closed. The open wreath is shown in the image. If this coin had a "C" denoting Charlotte NC as the mint that made it, it would be an excessively rare piece, commanding tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars.
