VERY RARE GEM 1863 GOLD DOLLAR

The 1863 is not only the rarest Civil War gold dollar from Philadelphia, it is the single rarest gold dollar of any type from this mint. Fewer than 100 are known from the original mintage of 6,200 business strikes and I doubt if more than a half dozen Gems are known. The finest is the amazing PCGS/CAC MS68 Brand/Akers/Duckor coin which sold for a whopping $193,875 as Heritage 2015 ANA: 4263.

This lovely Gem is a highlight of the HandH Collection. It is very high end for the grade with glowing golden color over very clean, fully lustrous surfaces. A few light copper spots on the obverse attest to this coin's originality and while both sides show a few small ticks, I regard this piece as being truly high end for the grade.

No MS65 1863 gold dollar has sold at auction since 1997 and neither of the two PCGS MS66 examples have crossed the block.

After the record-breaking sale of the Duckor 1863 gold dollar, this piece seems like good value at a fraction of the price. It is likely the best available example of this date and it is truly an exceptional little coin.

CAC has approved three in MS65 with just one finer (MS68).

From the HandH collection, ex Douglas Winter Numismatics.
