1899 five dollar Liberty Head gold coin. Designed by Christian Gobrecht. Graded by the American Numismatic Association (ANA) as MS61.
Diameter: 21.6 mm. Weight (approx): 8.36 grams.


This coin has been graded as MS61 by ANA. On their website, they define MS61 as "Mint luster may be diminished or noticeably impaired, and the surface may have clusters of large and small contact marks throughout. Hairlines could be very noticeable. Scuff marks may show as unattractive patches on large areas or major features. Small rim nicks and striking or planchet defects may show, and the quality may be noticeably poor. Eye appeal is somewhat unattractive. Copper pieces will be generally dull, dark, and possibly spotted."

This coin likely has signs of wear or use associated with circulated currencies that are not mentioned in this report as we are not professional coin graders. We strongly suggest inspecting the coins prior to purchase or requesting additional photos.
