Description:
Lustrous Gem 1849 Small Head, No L Gold Dollar, MS66
1849 G$1 No L MS66 PCGS. This is a remarkably, sharply struck example of the Small Head design of 1849 gold dollars, the first gold dollar variety struck in May of that year. The debut design, without Longacre's initial on the obverse, is highly elusive. Walter Breen recorded in his Complete Encyclopedia that only 1,000 of these pieces were struck on May 8. This Premium Gem specimen is nearly the finest certified. It has rich honey-gold luster with amazing eye appeal. The upper portion of the reverse die is shattered, suggesting that this was one of the final examples of this variety produced. Population: 6 in 66, 2 finer (1/07).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25B7, PCGS# 7501)
