$5 1848-D MS 62 PCGS This is a low mintage coin This is a treasure lot

Nice mint luster. Eye appealing pale yellow-golden color. Minute ticks and taps, but no obtrusive contact marks. There were 47,465 coins minted for this issue. PCGS has certified a mere six coins at this level with just one finer. The Dahlonega Mint had a significant quantity of California deposits following the discovery of gold that state in 1848 which calculated to about 20% of the facility's lifetime deposits. Much of this gold was brought to the mint by miners who had worked the Dahlonega mines prior to trying their luck in California.
