Description & Analysis


Jeff Garrett: The quality of strike improved greatly on this issue compared with those struck at the Dahlonega Mint in 1857. Many, but not all, are weakly struck in the central portions, particularly in the 85 of the date. This is one of the more obtainable Type 3 gold dollars produced at the Dahlonega Mint. About Uncirculated coins are offered at auction with regularity, but in Mint State the date becomes quite rare. At least two gems are known, the finest being a superb coin that formed part of the Duke’s Creek Collection and was graded MS 66 by NGC. It is a fully struck wonder-coin, and it is probably the finest Type 3 gold dollar known from the Dahlonega Mint. The coin sold at auction in April 2006 for $74,750.
