1849 $1 Gold Liberty. No L. PCGS graded MS-67. A lovely coin fully struck with semi reflective fields. Wonderful golden toning. PCGS holder 10813699. Here is a final 1849 modification of the obverse design featuring a larger bust of Liberty. The reverse design remained as before with an Open Wreath enclosing the date and denomination. There is no L on the neck truncation. This obverse and reverse combination only appeared on the coinage of 1849.

Gold dollars were struck in Philadelphia, New Orleans, Charlotte, and Dahlonega in this year. The Open Wreath design was common to the coinage of all Mints, but high quality survivors are definitely the subject of legend. We are excited to offer this superb Mint State 67 specimen for bidders to admire and for one, just one, collector to own. The chance of seeing another one offered anytime soon should be weighed carefully. Among the finest known. Pop 2; none finer at PCGS. (PCGS # 7501) .
Estimated Value $25,000 - 30,000.

Realized $44,850
