1849 Open Wreath $1.00 PCGS MS65 CAC

Mintage: 688,567

 

Large Head, L on neck. This is the more common of the 1849 Open Wreath gold dollar varieties and it is quickly identifiable by the position of the coronet tip. The 1849 Open Wreath with L is common in the lower Uncirculated grades but it is less available in Gem than the common 1851-1853 issues. It is, however, a tough coin in Gem.

 

This is an impressive first-year-of-issue which is both numismatically significant and aesthetically appealing.
