    Famous 1854-D Three Dollar AU50

    1854-D $3 AU50 NGC. Variety 1-A. Perhaps no other D-mint issue captures the imagination of Southern gold enthusiasts like the 1854-D three dollar. Both a first year and one-year type, the issue's tiny original production and low survival rate long secured its place among the numismatically elite Dahlonega gold coins. A perusal of Heritage auction records also shows that survivors are often damaged or harshly cleaned. This lightly circulated example has escaped such distractions. It is well defined for an 1854-D and retains glimpses of luster in the areas surrounding the devices. A few shallow blemishes are clustered in the lower left obverse field and faint die clashing is noticed on the reverse. Census: 12 in 50, 58 finer (11/06).
