    1854-D Three Dollar Gold, AU50
    Only Dahlonega Mint Three

    1854-D $3 AU50 PCGS. Variety 1-A. A small mintage of 1,120 three dollar gold pieces was accomplished at the Dahlonega Mint in 1854, the first year of the denomination. As things worked out, it was also the last, and only, year three dollar gold coins were struck at the famous Southern mint, making the issue a "must-have" for branch mint type collectors and series specialists alike. Most examples seen are in the VF-AU grade range and Mint State specimens are sought-after rarities. The coin offered here is an impressive AU specimen with well-detailed design elements that exhibit just a touch of wear on the high points. Some clash marks are evident on both sides. The lightly abraded orange-gold surfaces retain traces of original mint luster. The overall presentation is quite appealing. Population: 18 in 50, 47 finer (3/19).
