    1854-D Three Dollar, AU50
    Key to the Dahlonega Type Set

    1854-D $3 AU50 NGC. Variety 1-A. As the only three dollar gold piece struck at the Dahlonega Mint, the 1854-D has an immediate appeal to branch mint gold specialists, and it is a necessity for collectors of Dahlonega gold. The mintage was just 1,120 pieces, of which perhaps more than expected survive, although many of those are in low grades or impaired condition. The issue is most often seen in VF and low XF conditions.

    This About Uncirculated example displays pale greenish-gold color and moderate wear to define the grade. Like most examples of this key issue, the strike is weak at the dentils and across the high points of the design. Traces of luster remain in protected areas, and marks are surprisingly few for an 1854-D. A few light clash marks are seen on both sides, representative of the issue. Census: 10 in 50, 58 finer (11/19).
    From The "So Cal" Collection. (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 25M4, PCGS# 7970)
