1870. BG-1203, R-5. Round Liberty Gold Dollar. . BG-1203. PCGS graded MS-63. Prooflike fields on both sides and well struck for this issue. These gold dollars were coined by Robert B. Gray & Co., and signed with a small "G" below the truncation of Liberty, just above the date. There are some minute hairlines and these probably account for the grade, and we note a small hazy toning spot just above Liberty's head behind her coronet. This is the later die state with the light crack through the center of the reverse. Always popular and rare this nice, PCGS in their Population Report show 6 graded this high with just 2 graded higher (both MS-64).
Estimated Value $3,500 - 4,500.
Purchased from Jay Roe in February 1989.

Realized $8,338
