Description:
Rare and Elusive Select 1850-D Gold Dollar
Tied for Finest Certified
1850-D G$1 MS63 PCGS. Variety 2-C. Writing in 2003, Douglas Winter called the 1850-D gold dollar "one of the rarest Type One Dahlonega gold dollars. It is also among the most underrated and undervalued gold dollars struck at the Dahlonega Mint." While this piece shows some of the typical flatness on both sides--on the obverse hair and peripheral stars, the reverse on LLA, most of the peripheral legend, and the 5 in the date--there are few of the other problems that Winter notes plague the issue. The wreath and mintmark are bold, the fields are relatively free of contact, and there are no prestrike planchet problems such as laminations. A bit of clashing is noted on the reverse, but overall this coin has excellent eye appeal (and as such "worth a strong premium," according to Winter), with attractive coloration in shades of deep orange-gold and hazel.
According to the Condition Census Winter outlines, this piece appears tied with the Duke's Creek MS63 PCGS coin and two or three other MS63 pieces (some NGC) for finest certified. Population: 2 in 63, 0 finer (3/08).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 25BH, PCGS# 7511)
