    1850-C Gold Dollar, MS63
    Excellent Registry Set Contender

    1850-C G$1 MS63 PCGS. Variety 1. Only 6,966 gold dollars were struck at the Charlotte Mint in 1850, the second-smallest production total of the series. Doug Winter estimates the surviving population at 150-250 examples in all grades, leaving the 1850-C tied with the 1859-C as the second-rarest Charlotte gold dollar ( the legendary 1849-C Open Wreath is the rarest). This attractive Select example exhibits sharply detailed design elements throughout, an unusual situation for this issue, as most examples seen have some flatness on the head and star centers. The lustrous yellow and orange-gold surfaces are lightly marked and eye appeal is quite strong. Population: 3 in 63, 0 finer (3/16).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 25BG, PCGS# 7510)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
