    1872 Gold Dollar, MS68
    Phenomenal Quality

    1872 G$1 MS68 NGC. From an original production of only 3,500 business strikes, today the average certified survivor of the 1872 gold dollar issue only grades AU58 or thereabouts. Few high-grade examples exist, and among Mint State coins, most cluster in the range of MS62 through MS64. A tiny handful of wonderfully high-grade examples do exist, however, that were obviously held back from circulation at the time of their production and carefully preserved thereafter. Most of those coins show either full prooflike surfaces or semiprooflikeness.

    As one might expect from the grade, this is a phenomenal coin. The surfaces are essentially perfect. The only mentionable pedigree identifier is a small, curved lint mark in the left obverse field out from Liberty's forehead. The fields are bright and semiprooflike, with an even layer of rich reddish color over both sides. An incredible opportunity for the gold specialist. Among non-Prooflike examples, this coin is the only MS68, and surpassed by only a single MS69 coin at NGC, although that service has also certified one piece in MS68 Prooflike. The finest survivors at PCGS are in MS67 (1/13).
