    1851-D Gold Dollar, MS63+
    Well-Struck, High-End Dahlonega Type Coin

    1851-D G$1 MS63+ PCGS. CAC. Variety 3-E. Ex: Simpson. Among Dahlonega gold dollars, the 1851-D is fairly plentiful despite the low mintage of 9,882 pieces. Nonetheless, Mint State examples are inherently scarce, since gold circulated extensively in the South prior to the Civil War. This high-end Select Mint State example is conditionally rare, and just a handful of finer pieces are reported by the grading services. Only one other MS63 example is Plus graded at PCGS (9/20).

    Satiny yellow-gold and honey-hues adorn the lustrous surfaces of this piece. The strike is remarkably sharp throughout the stars and border dentils, while only a touch of weakness affects the area of Liberty's ear and the LA in DOLLAR. No major abrasions are seen. Population: 6 in 63 (2 in 63+), 2 finer (9/20).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25BM, PCGS# 7515)
