It's a night cap on the front
I Found An 1849 5 Dollar Coin From Pacific Company California. It Has An Eagle On The Back And What Appears To Be Sun Like Rays On The Front. Can Anyone Tell Me About It?
I have one too. I'm very curious what you find out. I know it's called the liberty cap. Check this site out. It's for the $10 version, but I found it interesting. americanhistory.si.edu/collections/object.cfm?key=35&obj
I have one just like it
