1850-D $2.50 PCGS EF45 CAC

From the standpoint of remaining luster and skin, this piece grades at least a full AU50 but PCGS has been conservative on account of some weakness of strike on the reverse which is fairly common for this date. There is some very nice color visible on both the obverse and reverse with more of this honey-gold and russet hue seen on the obverse. Really a nice example for the date and grade and a good coin for the date collector who favors choice, original Dahlonega quarter eagles. CAC has approved just two in this grade with seven finer.
