    1856-D Gold Dollar, AU58
    Remarkably Low-Mintage Issue
    Only 1,460 Pieces Produced

    1856-D G$1 AU58 PCGS. Variety 8-K. All 1,460 1856-D gold dollars were struck from a single die pair in May 1856, and between 75 and 100 examples are believed extant, half of which are VF-XF. This apricot-gold Borderline Uncirculated example is crisply struck for the issue, as only the U in UNITED, the O in DOLLAR, and the 5 in the date display softness. Light clash marks are noted near Liberty's profile, but the surfaces are only faintly marked. Luster illuminates the legends and devices. A significant opportunity for the Southern gold specialist. Population: 15 in 58, 7 finer (7/19).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2007), lot 3144.
    From The Poulos Family Collection, Part II.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
