1851-D Gold $1.00 NGC MS63

Mintage: 9,882

Here's an example that is unusual in two regards. First, it is a very early die state with no cracks or clashing on the reverse. Secondly, it is very well-preserved for the issue and among the finer known of the approximately 15-20 Uncirculated pieces that are currently accounted for. The weakness on the obverse border at 6:00-7:00 is typical for the issue as are the "artifacts" around the stars.
