1858-D $1.00 NGC AU55

This is as original an example of this popular Type Three issue as you are likely to find with deep, natural green-gold and reddish colors atop clean surfaces. The strike is well above average for the issue with strong lettering, a sharp date and a full mintmark. While actually fairly available by the standards of Dahlonega gold dollars of this era, the 1858-D is not easy to locate with original surfaces and this piece is really exceptional from the standpoint of appearance. It would be hard to find a better example at this price point and this coin is just perfect for a new collector who is getting started with a Dahlonega type set.
