    1880 Gold Dollar, MS68+
    Outstanding Eye Appeal
    Perfect Type Representative

    1880 G$1 MS68+ PCGS. CAC. Collector and dealer hoarding of gold dollars continued in 1880, resulting in a high survival rate among the 1,600 circulation strikes produced in Philadelphia. Those pieces did not circulate and were available only at a premium at the Mint. Dave Bowers estimates that 60% to 80% of the original mintage survives, nearly all in Mint State grades. The combination of a low mintage and high-grade survival makes the 1880 a popular choice with type collectors, especially in the Superb Gem grades of MS67 through MS69.

    A spectacular display of toning appears on both sides of this brilliant and highly lustrous Superb Gem. Powder-blue and pale lilac accompany vivid rose hues over lovely yellow-gold surfaces. A bold strike and pristine surfaces complete the extraordinary eye appeal. Population: 28 in 68 (1 in 68+), 1 finer. CAC: 22 in 68, 1 finer (11/16).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25DJ, PCGS# 7581)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
