Sale 63

Lot 1289

1851-D. NGC graded MS-62. Attractive with plenty of luster to justify the grade. A desirable Uncirculated example that is carefully struck with nominal die clashing on the reverse and only light weakness on the lower stars. The luster is frosty and bright with a few modest marks detected. 1851-D is a low mintage year, one of only 9,882 pieces, yet is actually the one Dahlonega Mint Gold Dollar more likely to be found in higher grades, although the majority of these top out in About Uncirculated condition. The preservation of this example places it in the elite rank of Mint State survivors. Pop 24; 10 finer (PCGS # 7515) .
Estimated Value $6,500 - 7,000.
The Frank McCarthy Collection.

Realized $5,980
