Duckor/Akers Pedigree.

The mintage for this issue is a relatively generous 10,500 business strikes which is around double the number for most of the gold dollars produced from 1863 through the end of the 1870′s. Despite this mintage, ther 1868 is a scarce coin in Gem and just a few superb pieces are known. The two finest are a pair of PCGS MS68′s; one of which I am currently offering in the Vasquez Rocks collection and the other which is owned by Dr. Steve Duckor as part of his world-class gold dollar collection. The coin offered here was formerly owned by Dr. Duckor and he obtained it via private treaty from the famed dealer (and gold dollar specialist) Dave Akers. I obtained it directly from Dr. Duckor after he bought his MS68 example.

This coin is superb and, to be honest, I like it as much or more than the PCGS MS68 that Dr. Duckor replaced it with in his collection. The surfaces are extremely clean with no appreciable marks and they show lovely rich orange-gold and rose hues.

The last PCGS MS67 1868 gold dollar to sell at auction was Heritage 8/12: 5267 which brought $11,163. That piece was not CAC and it had a noticeable planchet flake in the right obverse field.

Here is an opportunity to own an essentially unimprovable example of this date.

CAC has approved two in this grade and one finer (PCGS MS68).

Ex Dr. Steven Duckor collection via private treaty from David Akers; probably earlier ex Brand I: 37 (Bowers and Merena, 1983) at $5,775.
