    Elusive in All Grades

    1851-D $2 1/2 AU53 PCGS. Variety 1. Doug Winter writes of the 1851-D: "Collectors have learned that this is a scarce issue in any grade and prices have risen accordingly." The survival estimate is only 100 to 125 pieces in all grades. The present AU representative displays smooth, luminous surfaces with straw-gold hues throughout. The central hair curls and shield region are slightly soft, as are portions of the peripheral denticles -- characteristics occasionally associated with this Dahlonega issue. Population: 13 in 53, 12 finer (8/16).
