Quite a few scarce and rare dates challenge collectors in the One Dollar Gold Coin series.
Closed wreath. A great example of this first year Gold Dollar with lustrous orange-gold surfaces and an excellent strike.
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 one is spectacular with super rich orange-gold luster exploding off silky smooth surfaces. The strike is razor-sharp and the eye appeal is off the charts!
