No Date (1853). BG-501, R-5+. Octagonal Liberty Gold Dollar. . BG-501. PCGS graded MS-63. One of the finest graded of this important variety, PCGS has only graded 5 this high, with none graded higher! Further, this one is housed in an old green insert PCGS holder. Popular because of the reverse motif, with the Kellogg style eagle with ribbon familiar to territorial gold collectors. Liberty's hair is sharp, and her cheek is clean. On the reverse we note some minor hairlines under GOLD in the field, and a die crack from the tip of the right ribbon end to the rim below. Worth a strong bid and very difficult to locate in top grades. Featured on Doering's cover for good reason.
Estimated Value $4,000-UP.
Purchased privately from Jay Roe in 1990.

Realized $5,290
