    Important AU58 1854-D Three Dollar Gold Piece

    1854-D $3 AU58 PCGS. The 1854-D is the only Dahlonega issue in the three dollar series, a fact that has placed great importance on any examples that have been offered over the years at public auction. It is also rare in the absolute sense as well as being a condition rarity. Only 1,120 pieces were struck, and today probably no more than 95 pieces are extant in all grades, most of which are in the VF-XF grade ranges. In near-Mint condition, there are very few pieces known and anytime one is offered for sale it is an important event for both type collectors as well as date and mintmark collectors. This piece has significant portions of original mint luster over both sides and the golden-orange color of the coin is interspersed with lilac throughout. Sharply struck. A die clash mark is located in front of Liberty's neck, as sometimes seen, and there is a short diagonal mark to the right of the 3 on the reverse that might serve as a pedigree identifier in the future. (NGC ID# 25M4, PCGS# 7970)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
