1869 $1.00 NGC MS63

Only 5,900 business strikes were made and this issue tended to circulate unlike the low mintages Gold Dollars from the 1880's which were hoarded. This bright, lustrous piece has a great appearance and a few light handling marks on the obverse narrowly remove it from a higher grade. Only six MS63 pieces have sold at auction since June 2005. In my opinion, coins like this at under $2,000 are excellent value in today's market.
