    1881 Gold Dollar, MS68
    Pristine Prooflike Surfaces

    1881 G$1 MS68 PCGS. CAC. Always in demand because of its low mintage of 7,620 pieces, the 1881 gold dollar has been a favorite of collectors since the time of issue. The 1881 was heavily saved by contemporary collectors, and examples in lower Mint State grades are not difficult to locate. However, specimens in MS68 condition are predictably rare. This incredible MS68 example exhibits razor-sharp definition on all design elements and the prooflike fields are deeply reflective. Close inspection with a loupe reveals no surface flaws and eye appeal is outstanding. Population: 40 in 68 (1 in 68+), 0 finer (3/13).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25DK, PCGS# 7582)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
