    Very Scarce 1854-D Three Dollar, AU55, The Only Three Dollar From the Dahlonega Mint

    1854-D $3 AU55 PCGS. The '54-D is a major rarity from the Dahlonega Mint: a mere 1,120 pieces were produced and it is the only Three Dollar struck in the Dahlonega Mint. Examples are very scarce in all grades with only 85-95 pieces believed known and a mere 14-16 coins are estimated to exist in the various AU grades. This is a well struck coin with especially strong definition on the lower reverse. A V-shaped die clash mark is seen in front of Liberty's neck and the obverse rim shows the merged denticles around much of that side, both of which are diagnostic of genuine examples. Light reddish patina accents each side, more noticeably around the peripheries. (NGC ID# 25M4, PCGS# 7970)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
