    1855-D Gold Dollar, AU50
    Only Gold CAC Example
    Green Label Holder

    1855-D G$1 AU50 PCGS. Gold CAC. Variety 7-J. The rarer of the two die marriages, Variety 7-J shows the date entered slightly further east relative to the alternative Variety 7-I. Any die pairing of the 1855-D is desirable, since it is the sole Type Two Dahlonega issue, and is essentially to any type set from the Georgian facility. Only 1,811 pieces were struck, and the hundred or so survivors are pursued in all grades. It is unusual to encounter an 1855-D gold dollar in a green label holder bearing a gold CAC seal. In fact, the present piece is the only '55-D in any grade bearing the coveted gold CAC sticker, which indicates that service believes that the coin is undergraded. Indeed, this example displays luster throughout the wreath, neck curls, and headdress. The wheat-gold surfaces lack noticeable abrasions. As usual for Variety 7-J, the strike is incomplete on the central reverse, opposite the high points of the portrait.(Registry values: N7079)

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
