Description & Analysis


Jeff Garrett: The 1853-D gold dollar is of similar rarity to the above-mentioned 1853-C. Both are moderately rare in all grades, and exceptionally rare in Mint State. Many great collections that have been sold in the past could muster only a circulated example of the date. The quality of production for this issue is about par for a coin of the era from a Southern mint. Poor planchets and weakness of strike are not unusual. Light die scratching is also often seen on examples of the 1853-D. Incredibly, at least two superb examples of this coin are known. They are from a hoard of gold coins discovered in Jackson, Tennessee, during construction of a parking lot. It is not known exactly what coins were in the hoard, but they were mostly from the 1850s. The single NGC MS 66 certified coin sold in February 2010 for $74,750.
