1853-D. PCGS graded AU-58. Well struck with lovely golden toning. Only 6,583 minted of which merely 125 examples are estimated to have survived. Pop 22; 12 finer (PCGS # 7523) .

Die note: Under magnification the reverse is unusual. Probably from treatment in the machine shop at the Dahlonega Mint--where something less than delicate finessing was employed--the die has gained a number of raised lines, possibly removed rust or clash marks, a berry is solidly wedded to the base of T (UNITED), and there are other idiosyncrasies. Both obverse and reverse may have been relapped.
Estimated Value $3,500 - 3,600.
The William H & Beuelaress K. Helem Collection.

Realized $5,060
