    Description

    Appealing 1861 Gem Proof Gold Dollar

    1861 G$1 PR65 PCGS. The 1861 gold dollar saw a mintage of 349 proofs. This figure is misleading, however, as Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth (2006) state that: "... the great majority of them must have been melted." Certified population figures corroborate this assertion, as PCGS and NGC have graded just 34 coins. The peach-gold surfaces of this Gem display strong field-motif contrast, and are devoid of mentionable flaws. A solid strike leaves virtually complete definition on the design elements. Population: 11 in 65, 1 finer (12/08).(Registry values: P4)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25E4, PCGS# 7611)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
