    Superb Gem 1872 Gold Dollar
    Rare Low-Mintage Issue

    1872 G$1 MS67 PCGS. CAC. The 1872 gold dollar boasts a minuscule mintage of 3,500 pieces, low even by gold dollar standards. In his series reference, Q. David Bowers notes, "All 1872 gold dollars are rare." Most examples seen are in AU or lower Mint State grades. Superb Gem examples are extremely rare. Currently, PCGS has certified eight examples in MS67, with none finer, while NGC has graded no coins in this grade, with two finer (6/10). The present coin has boldly impressed devices that contrast starkly with the reflective, prooflike fields. The lovely greenish-gold surfaces complement the crisp design elements to create a visual treat for the discerning collector. David Akers informs us he obtained this coin from the heirs of an old-time collector, who purchased it directly from Wayte Raymond. The coin has been off the market for generations.
