1850-D $1.00 NGC MS63

Mintage: 8,382


The 1850-D is probably the most overlooked gold dollar from the Dahlonega mint, and there are fewer than 200 known from the original mintage. It is hard to locate even in the higher AU grades, and in Uncirculated the 1850-D is very rare with just six to eight known to me.


Unlike most 1850-D dollars which are dull and lifeless, this choice original piece is lustrous and vibrant. It shows a slightly better than average strike with some flatness at the centers but a nearly full date and a sharp mintmark. The surfaces have as much luster as on any 1850-D that I have seen and show nice natural medium reddish-gold splashes over rich yellow-gold undertones.
