Description:
Gem 1849 Open Wreath Gold Dollar, Breen-6002
Repunched Star, Ideal First-Year Type
1849 G$1 Open Wreath MS65 NGC. Breen-6002. Distant Stars subtype. The Breen variety is identified by the broad repunching on the obverse star near the rim at 5 o'clock. This Gem example boasts exuberant luster over even yellow-gold surfaces that show few marks of any size. The prodigious quantities of freshly mined California gold beginning in 1849 were responsible for the introduction of new smallest and largest gold denominations, the one dollar and twenty dollar, in 1849 and 1850 respectively. A super first-year type coin. Census: 40 in 65, 11 finer (12/12).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 25B9, PCGS# 7502)
