    1855-D Variety 7-I Gold Dollar, AU53
    The Only Type Two Dahlonega Issue

    1855-D G$1 AU53 NGC. Variety 7-I. A minuscule mintage of 1,811 coins was the fourth lowest of all Dahlonega Mint gold dollars, and this was the only issue of the Type Two or Small Indian Head design from that facility. Jeff Garrett suggests that fewer than 100 examples survive, and Dave Bowers supports that assumption in A Guide Book of Gold Dollars when he estimates eight to 12 Mint State pieces and 60 to 80 circulated examples. The 1855-D is the third rarest issue of the denomination behind the 1856-D and 1861-D gold dollars. The lower mintage 1860-D has a higher total population. Housed in an older NGC holder, this piece shows strike weakness and light wear on the obverse high points, with sharper reverse design elements. Hints of lilac and rose toning appear on the pale yellow surfaces of this pleasing Type Two gold dollar. Census: 8 in 53, 25 finer (11/19).
