Description & Analysis

The 1857-D has gained notoriety in recent years as the most undervalued Type Three gold dollar from this mint. There are an estimated 120 to 130 pieces known but the great majority are in well-circulated grades. Between five and seven Uncirculated coins are accounted for but a number of these are in the MS60 to MS61 range and may not have been regarded as 'new' by previous grading interpretations.
