    1875 Gold Dollar, MS63
    Only 400 Coins Produced for Circulation

    1875 G$1 MS63 PCGS. The main draw of the 1875 gold dollar is its incredibly low mintage of only 400 strikes for circulation. This low production didn't allow enough time for the initial die polish to diminish from the dies, and as a result almost all business strikes show reflectivity in the fields. In the past this has been a problem and occasionally early-state business strikes were confused with the even rarer proofs (only 20 pieces struck). Die study showed that strikes for circulation display a thorn-like projection from Liberty's neck into the field below, as seen here. The fields are bright and reflective, as expected, and both sides exhibit rich rose-gold color with no mentionable abrasions. Population: 6 in 63, 18 finer (7/19).
