    Popular 1854-D Three Dollar Rarity, AU58 NGC

    1854-D $3 AU58 NGC. As the only D-mint issue in the intriguing Three Dollar gold series, and a low mintage date with only 1,120 pieces produced, the 1854-D is an understandably popular coin among advanced collectors. The estimate of survivors is 85-95 coins, only 15 of which qualify for an AU grade (per Winter, 1997). Winter's Condition Census for this issue includes one Mint State coin and five Choice AU examples, a grade range that guarantees the present example's inclusion on this list. This is an attractive coin for the grade with satiny luster and pleasing orange-gold coloration. Well defined in the centers with only the lightest wear over the highpoints, the denticles are characteristically weak for the issue. Accuracy compels us to mention a shallow scrape on the obverse over Liberty's chin, as well as a few minor rim disruptions on the reverse, but the balance of the features display only the light abrasions that one would expect for the grade.
    From the Richard Genaitis Collection. (NGC ID# 25M4, PCGS# 7970)
