No L. This was the first die pair used for this first year Gold Dollar. Breen and Akers both list the mintage as a mere 1,000 coins although most of the survivors are in fairly high grade. This is a wonderful coin for the grade with fiery orange-gold luster and a great strike.
Very nearly mint state with a sharp strike and nice lustrous surfaces. A scarce date with a mintage of just 21,588 and the first Dahlonega Mint gold dollar.
Very tough in high grade with most survivors grading VF to XF. This is a beautiful bright lustrous example with a solid strike and excellent eye appeal.
A scarce gold dollar from the tiny Charlotte Mint with a mintage of just 6,956 pieces. This example has bold detail with nice original lustrous surfaces.
