    1853-O Gold Dollar, MS66
    Tied for Finest at PCGS

    1853-O G$1 MS66 PCGS. Variety 1. Ex: Simpson. The 1853-O is moderately plentiful in Mint State, although most such coins grade no finer than MS64. Gems are rare, and only five Premium Gems are reported at PCGS. The Simpson coin is tied for the finest at PCGS, an essential coin for the Registry collector. We have previously handled only one other MS66 example, in our August 2015 sale of the Duckor Collection, where an MS66 PCGS example realized $23,500.

    This example is impressively sharp both around the borders and on the central devices, with only slight softness evident on the second L in DOLLAR. The rich honey-gold surfaces are beautifully preserved and lustrous with soft mint frost. No distracting abrasions are seen. Population: 5 in 66, 0 finer (9/20).(Registry values: N1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25BX, PCGS# 7524)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
