1851-D $1 Gold Liberty. NGC graded AU-58. A nice strike with some luster and a hint of tone. Only 9,882 minted. An especially attractive About Uncirculated example that is boldly struck with an absence of the often-seen heavy die clashing on the reverse, only a faint ghost-image of Liberty appears within the wreath, mainly along the right-hand side. Ample luster is present within and around devices, and only a few modest handle marks can be detected. In spite of its low mintage of only 9,882 pieces, the '51-D is actually one of the Dahlonega Mint Gold Dollars more likely to be seen in the marketplace, although many of these have been cleaned or are worn. The preservation of this choice example places it in the upper rank its grade. Pop 44; 56 finer (PCGS # 7515) .
Estimated Value $2,500 - 2,600.

Realized $2,875
