First year of issue with multiple design varieties including No L, the common Open Wreath and this Closed Wreath Philadelphia struck example. A better Philadelphia date in mint state among those Type 1s struck through 1854. One immediately note the bold satiny cartwheel luster and full strike. Both the obverse and reverse dies are heavily clashed. Reverse die also has a substantial amount of vertical die polish lines that transferred to strikes. Overall a pleasing mint state example that is accurately graded. Housed in new 2015 style PCGS holder and ready for a home in an advanced United States gold $1 collection. December 1969
