    Superb Gem 1870 Gold Dollar
    High Technical Grade, Intense Eye Appeal

    1870 G$1 MS67 PCGS. CAC. From a tiny mintage of 6,335 pieces, the 1870 gold dollar is a scarce-to-rare issue in all grades today. Examples in Superb Gem condition are very rare, with PCGS reporting six specimens graded in MS67, with a single example finer, while NGC has certified four coins in this exalted grade, with two finer (6/10). The present coin is a magnificent Superb Gem, with vibrant, frosty luster on the obverse and reflective, semiprooflike fields on the reverse. The striking details are needle-sharp and the coin shows strong elements of field-device contrast. The stunning eye appeal is confirmed by the CAC sticker. Noted gold specialist David Akers obtained this coin from the family of an old-time collector, who purchased it directly from Wayte Raymond. Opportunities to obtain a specimen of this quality are seldom encountered.
    From The Personal Collection of David W. Akers.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25D6, PCGS# 7569)
