Description & Analysis


Jeff Garrett: The 1849-C Closed Wreath variety can be considered quite scarce in any grade. High grade examples are usually Prooflike in appearance but can be difficult to grade due to convex obverse fields (giving the coin a bulged look), which can be confused with damage. Low grade pieces are the norm, with Mint State coins being very rare. The 1849-C Closed Wreath design is scarce in all grades, but it is the only collectible Charlotte Mint gold dollar for the year that is practical to collect. The finest example seen is an MS 64 coin that was discovered by me in 2014, and later sold at auction in 2015 for $49,350.
