1851-D $1.00 NGC AU58 CAC

Old Fatty Holder. This example was graded and encapsulated many years ago. It shows just a slight amount of wear on the surfaces with a considerable amount of natural luster present. Both sides have medium natural reddish-gold color with the hues a bit deeper and more extensive on the obverse. The strike is sharp and even with a strong date and mintmark. The 1851-D is the second most available Type One gold dollar from this mint but it is considerably scarcer than the 1849-D. This would make a great type coin for the collector who wants a nice gold dollar from Dahlonega but who is willing to pay a bit more to acquire a more interesting piece than a run-of-the-mill 1849-D.
