    1880 Gold Dollar, MS68+
    Remarkable Surface Preservation

    1880 G$1 MS68+ PCGS. CAC. The low mintage of the 1880 gold dollar is not its only draw for collectors. It also has a high survival rate in Uncirculated grades, even in MS68. The two services combined have certified a total of 54 pieces in this grade, and each company has also graded a single example MS69. This availability in Gem (and finer) condition makes the 1880 gold dollar available for only a slight premium over a type coin price, a terrific deal for the collector who can then combine high grade with a remarkably low mintage. This is an exceptional piece that qualifies for "wonder coin" status. Each side displays bright mint frost as well as semireflective fields. Deep, even reddish-orange color covers both obverse and reverse, and the strike details are complete. Population: 30 in 68 (3 in 68+), 1 finer. CAC: 22 in 68, 1 finer (3/20).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25DJ, PCGS# 7581)

    Weight: 1.67 grams
