Description & Analysis


Jeff Garrett: The 1850-C issue is one of the rarest Charlotte Mint gold dollars. High grade examples are almost never seen, and lower grade coins are elusive. The production of the 1850-C gold dollar is generally poor, making grading difficult. The surfaces of this issue are often Prooflike but with grainy or rough patches. The strike, on most seen by the authors, has been average, with some weakness on the obverse. Just a few choice coins have been graded over the years. Notable examples that have surfaced include the Eliasberg coin, the James A. Stack piece, and the coin that was part of the famous Elrod Collection.
