    Superb Quality 1849 Gold Dollar

    1849 MS 66 PCGS. L on Neck, Open Wreath. An exceptional gold dollar, and all the more desirable as the first year of the type. While relatively available in lesser grades, the 1849 is very infrequently seen in MS 66 condition. According to the May Population Report only 7 other pieces have been so graded with none finer. Very sharply defined throughout with full mint bloom, the surfaces are virtually free from post-striking impairments. An opportunity for the collector of high grade gold type or first year of type collectors.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25B8, PCGS# 7502)
