    Still-Lustrous 1860-D Dollar, AU55
    'Worst Struck Dahlonega Gold Dollar'

    1860-D G$1 AU55 NGC. Variety 12-P. The 1860-D gold dollar is an interesting coin issue that is hard to grade, as it is the "worst struck Dahlonega gold dollar," according to Doug Winter. This piece is graded by luster, as the UN is missing and much of the rest of the obverse legend is weak. LIBERTY and the central details are fairly well-impressed. On the reverse most of the dentilation from 7:30 to 1:30 is missing or weak, and the bowknot and upper left-side wreath show weakness as well. Again, the central reverse details are passable, although the O in DOLLARS is mushy. From a mintage of 1,500 pieces. Census: 18 in 55, 29 finer (7/12).
