PCGS/CAC MS64 1851-O GOLD DOLLAR

The 1851-O gold dollar is easily located in grades up through MS63 but it is scarce in properly graded MS64, and rare in Gem. Until a small hoard of high-grade pieces was located in 2004 this date was all but unknown above MS64.

This lovely borderline Gem is well-struck despite a number of significant cracks on the upper obverse. It is very frosty with lovely natural green-gold colors which darken to an orange hue at the border. A few scuffs in the fields limit the grade but this is a really high-end coin for the assigned grade.

No CAC approved PCGS MS64 has sold at auction. The last two PCGS MS64s were sold back in 2015, and they realized $3,290 and $3,319.

This is an absolutely perfect coin for the type collector who wants a very high-end but affordable New Orleans Type One gold dollar.

CAC has approved 3 in this grade with 11 finer.
