    Splendid Choice AU 1855-D
    Two and a Half Dollar
    'Second Rarest Dahlonega Issue'

    1855-D $2 1/2 AU55 PCGS. Variety 18-M. Ex: North Georgia. The 1855-D quarter eagle is, according to branch mint guru Doug Winter, the "second rarest coin struck at the Dahlonega Mint," second only to the 1856-D quarter eagle that follows it. This is a simply splendid 1855-D that certainly appears choice for the grade. The strike is well executed, and some prooflike luster appears in the fields, along with some light hazel-gray accents. Light wear appears on the high points, and there are few abrasions other than a small patch of ticks in the left obverse field, before Liberty's face. In Choice AU grade, this piece appears tied with a few others at the lower end of the Condition Census. Population: 9 in 55, 3 finer (6/09).
