1849 Pattern Gold Dollar, Judd-115, Hand-Engraved Not Die Struck1849 Gold Dollar, Judd-115, Pollock-130, R.7, AU 53 PCGS. A simply laid out coin that has a square central perforation. On the obverse, around the perforation, is the legend 1.DOLLAR. 1849. The reverse has a laurel wreath around the perforated center and outside that UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Struck in gold with a plain edge. Presumably this pattern was hurriedly made, and as a result each piece was hand engraved by James Longacre rather than being struck from dies. The perforation was apparently done to make the coin wider (16 mm. vs. 13 mm. for the regular issue gold dollar), and easier to distinguish the gold dollar from the five-cent piece. Lightly handled, resulting in the AU grade, this is otherwise a problem-free example of this rare and highly desirable pattern gold coin. (PCGS# 60115)
