This specimen is from the highly sought after Deadwood Collection. This 166-year old 1856 Upright 5 Gold U.Dollar is housed in a special limited edition core black holder and pedigreed by NGC. This original Red Book variety and first year of the Type 3 gold dollar variety is extremely. Scarce due to the fact that it was only minted during Q-4 of 1856 as this variety. Represents the US Mint's first denomination to have the date logotype standardized on. In 1857, all date logotypes for all denominations of US coinage went upright in non-italic. According to JP Martin, the surviving 1856 Upright 5 Gold Dollars are likely 10-15 times. Scarcer than the Slanted 5 variety.
