Description

1881 Gold Dollar, MS68
In-Demand, Low-Mintage Date
Among the Finest Known

1881 G$1 MS68 PCGS. CAC. The 1881 gold dollar is always in demand because of its low mintage of 7,620 pieces. Fortunately, the issue was widely saved at its time of issue, and Gem examples can be located with little difficulty today. Of course, only a few survivors can hope to match the eye appeal and high technical grade of the present coin. PCGS has yet to certify any coin in higher numeric grades; NGC has graded only three specimens finer (2/13). The complete strike brings up every detail of the design elements on this Superb Gem, while the pristine, greenish-gold surfaces are awash in vibrant mint luster. The visual appeal is fantastic.
Ex: Personal Collection of David W. Akers/ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2010), lot 3391, where it brought $12,650.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25DK, PCGS# 7582)
