Exquisite MS66 1849 No L Gold Dollar

1849 G$1 No L MS66 PCGS. This is a remarkable and 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 subtype, without Longacre's initial on the obverse, is elusive. Walter Breen recorded in his Complete Encyclopedia that only 1,000 of these pieces were struck on May 8. The obverse is also noteworthy for three prominently repunched stars, two of which are beneath the bust. This Premium Gem specimen is among the finest certified. It has rich honey-gold luster with gorgeous 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: 7 in 66, 2 finer (11/07).
Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/07), lot 4192, which realized $12,650; ANA National Money Sale (Heritage, 3/98), lot 6318, which realized $9,430.
