$5, 1843 EF-45 (PCGS). A plentiful issue for the pedigree collector-another opportunity to say "this is from the S.S. Central America" when displaying your collection.
From a generous mintage of 611,205 coins, exceeded only by 1847 and 1861 among coins of this design type (1849-1866 without motto). Very light greenish gold with some marks normal for the grade.
