Exceptional Eye Appeal, Gem Original, PCGS Pop 1, Rare Dahlonega Issue. 1850 brought the second year of gold dollar strikes at the Dahlonega mint with production amounting to 8,382 pieces. GFRC is incredibly pleased to be offering this gem original AU58+ graded specimen with CAC approval. The 1850-D issue is a rare date and underrated issue. Most survivors will be found at the VF-EF levels. In AU58 and Mint State, this date become very rare. This date is known for below average surface quality and incomplete strikes. Few 1850-D strikes come with above average eye appeal. Now that the baseline has been established, let's discuss this amazing gem offering. Coloring is primary a deep green-gold overlaid with orange-gold shades surrounding the devices. Blood red coloring is also seen on reverse at 9:00. Strike is MUCH better than average with well defined stars and a nearly complete hair curl below the legend. Reverse strike is fully executed and stunning. Overall eye appeal is better than the CoinFacts PCGS MS63 and MS62+ coins. This offering is the sole piece graded AU58+. CAC population is 3 at AU58, 2 at MS62 and a lone MS63. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2021) holder. I'm in awe of this little gem and believe you might be when viewed in hand.
