    1851-O Gold Dollar, MS65
    Ex: Duckor-Simpson

    1851-O G$1 MS65 PCGS. CAC. Variety 1. Doug Winter commented on this particular coin when we last offered it five years ago: "This piece has the typical luster and color of an 1851-O from the [2004 Philadelphia] hoard, but it is clearly nicer than average. In fact, were it not for a few ticks in the left obverse field, it would likely be in an MS66 holder." Slight central weakness is evident on the hair curls over Liberty's ear, and at the LA of DOLLAR and the 5 of the date. All other design elements are boldly rendered. Both sides of this Gem are highly lustrous with brilliant lemon-yellow surfaces. Wisps of pale blue enhance the eye appeal. Population: 27 in 65 (4 in 65+), 3 finer. CAC: 9 in 65, 3 finer (7/20).
    Ex: Purchased from Pinnacle Rarities; Dr. Steven Duckor; Duckor Family Collection of Gold Dollars / ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2015), lot 4242.
