1853-D $1 Gold Liberty. NGC graded MS-62. Fully brilliant untoned coin. 6,583 struck. One pair of dies was used to produce the D-mint gold dollars from this year. Many show incompleteness of strike. Only a small number of Mint State 1853-D are believed to be extant since most entered circulation. A Choice example, we see a better than average strike of the sort not often associated with Dahlonega Mint gold. The strands of hair show entirely while the stars have their full radial lines; the wreath is virtually complete. Dentils are weak in areas (as always). An appealing light greenish gold patina is evident on both sides with and there are no obvious marks, only a hairline or two. Easy Condition Census material for the issue. Desirable both from the standpoint of its remarkable condition as a gold dollar and also as a high quality Southern mint issue. Pop 11; 8 finer (PCGS # 7523) .
Estimated Value $8,500 - 9,000.

Realized $9,775
