1877 $1 Gold Indian. NGC graded MS-68 PL. A lovely gem with light golden toning. Looks like a Proof. Widely sought as an appealing example of the 1877 coinage, various dates this year are low mintage, or are Proof-only, or they have some other reason for enticing collectors to buy. The Gold Dollar's mystique is of course its impressively small mintage of only 3,900 business strikes (although the 1876 and 1878 compete). This is a gorgeous superb example and one of the finest Gold Dollars we have had the pleasure to auction for a consignor, that includes several similarly graded coins from the 1880s which are far commoner (if this is the correct word) in MS68. The surfaces are perfect to all intents and purposes and from a technical standpoint, and each side has lovely bright-gold color. The fields gleam with Prooflike reflection, but there is also a slight cartwheel effect which adds to the charm of this superb Gold Dollar. Pop 2; none finer at NGC (PCGS # 7578) .
Estimated Value $9,000 - 10,000.
The Estate of Winthrop A. Haviland, Jr.

Realized $14,950
