Singular MS68 1850 Gold Dollar
1850 G$1 MS68 NGC. CAC. Any discussion of this coin must
start with its grade. This is the single finest example of
the date in the major grading services' combined certified
population (11/12): no ties, no "other-service" shenanigans, no
exceptions. The nearest PCGS-graded coins come from a trio of MS67
listings (which may involve resubmissions, as there is only one
MS66 coin in the Population Report), and NGC recognizes no
coins but this in numerical grades above MS66.
Finest in Combined Population
To put this coin in a broader context, there are only 14 Type One gold dollars of any date in the MS68 grade range and a mere six coins in MS69 (11/12). These numbers back up what common sense presupposes: Any Type One gold dollar is a fantastic rarity in grades beyond Superb Gem. That this second-year coin is in clear first place for its issue is icing on the proverbial cake for type collectors, though for date enthusiasts it becomes a point of supreme importance.
Whether one collects by date or type, this MS68 gold dollar is an absolute dream. Intricately detailed devices show a single small copper spot on the top curve of the hair behind Liberty's coronet, a useful pedigree marker for identifying future appearances. Faint glimmers of both green and orange give the yellow-gold surfaces touches of color, while the luster, flashy at certain angles and swirling through others, is utterly untouched by the pedestrian faults seen on virtually all other coins. The CAC label backs up this assessment. A magnificent coin that must be seen to be believed.
