$1.00 - 1859-D PCGS AU53 CAC - $4650
OUTSTANDING OLD HOLDER PCGS/CAC AU53 1859-D GOLD DOLLAR
This date is reasonably available in AU grades despite a low mintage of 4,952. Most 1859-D gold dollars in AU holders have been lightened or stripped and nice, choice pieces are difficult to locate.
This piece is housed in an old green label holder and, in my opinion, it grades at least AU55 if not AU58. It shows a somewhat blunt strike which is typical for this variety but there is considerable mint luster remaining beneath lovely rich natural straw-gold color. The surfaces are immaculate and this example has exceptional overall eye appeal.
No PCGS AU53 1859-D gold dollar with CAC approval has ever sold at auction and there are just three records since January 2004. A nice non-CAC PCGS AU55 brought $4,560 as Stack’s Bowers 6/18: 13 while a ratty PCGS AU55 sold for $3,840 as Heritage 3/19: 3223.
This coin truly has all the “bells and whistles” and it is a special 1859-D dollar!
CAC has approved this one piece in AU53 with 16 finer.
