    1868 Gold Dollar
    Impeccable MS67 ★ Prooflike

    1868 G$1 MS67 ★ Prooflike NGC. The 1868 gold dollar saw a production of circulation strikes totaling only 10,500 pieces, and most Mint State examples are in the lower rungs thereof. For example, NGC has seen several dozen (67, more precisely) submissions in the grades from MS60 to MS63, but only seven in MS64, two in MS65, one in MS67, and one in MS68. Among Prooflike coins, NGC shows seven in MS61, three in MS62, and two in MS63 -- then the data gap until two submissions in MS67 Prooflike -- either this coin plus one other, or perhaps a resubmission of the present piece at some point. In any case, this immaculate piece is, at minimum, tied for the finest Prooflike example by a wide margin.

    The surfaces of this yellow-gold example are highly reflective and well-struck throughout, and there are simply no marks of any significance on either side. A faint streak of copper patina occurs over the first T in STATES, a useful pedigree marker.
    From The Fairfax Collection. (NGC ID# 25D4, PCGS# 77567)
