Description

1855 Type Two Gold Dollar, MS64
Sharply Defined, Reddish-Tinted Mint Luster

1855 G$1 MS64 PCGS. The 1855 gold dollar, unlike the 1854 issue, is only found in the Type Two or Indian Princess format, and it is marginally more elusive than the 1854 Type Two. Some pieces are found with the double 5s in the date either of the Open 5 or Closed 5 style, to which Breen assigns different numbers in his Complete Encyclopedia, although we know of no collectors who seek out these differences. Bowers writes in his series Guide Book that "on working dies, if the [date] logotype is not driven straight into the die, the last digit can be heavier, and the ball can be closer to the upright or even touching it. This logotype was used on all dies of all mints." This lustrous example shows no signs of doubling, and the strike is uncommonly strong with just the slightest softness noted on the 8 in the date. Rich red-gold mint frost is only interrupted by the usual die clash marks in the fields.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 25C4, PCGS# 7532)
