    1872 Gold Dollar, MS67
    None Numerically Finer at PCGS

    1872 G$1 MS67 PCGS. Like most gold dollars of this era, the 1872 boasts a small business-strike mintage. Only 3,500 pieces were struck, making the issue scarce-to-rare in all grades and conditions today. Most examples seen are in high AU or lower Mint State grades, indicating the coins must have circulated to some degree. The surviving population numbers no more than 110-160 examples all told.

    The present coin is a spectacular Superb Gem, one of the finest certified at either of the leading grading services. The design elements are sharply detailed and the well-preserved greenish-gold surfaces show a few hints of lilac, with prooflike reflectivity throughout. Eye appeal is terrific. Population: 10 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer (7/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25D9, PCGS# 7572)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
