1853-D. Large D. PCGS graded AU-53. Deep orange toning. Only 350 examples are estimated to have survived. Pop 34; 75 finer (PCGS # 8255) .

Historic note: The Dahlonega Mint produced gold coins from a variety of gold sources: naturally-occurring gold (from Georgia, as well as other states), foreign gold coins, gold bullion, scrap gold, etc. The Dahlonega Mint even produced coins from gold that was brought in from great distances. For example, the Dahlonega Mint actually coined a great deal of California gold from 1851-1854, which was brought back by local miners returning from the California gold fields. Thus, there is no fool-proof way to know whether or not a particular Dahlonega gold coin was produced from locally mined metal.
Estimated Value $2,400 - 2,500.

Realized $2,530
