About this set: I'm attempting to put a set of $1 gold in PCGS 65 or better .. If PCGS has graded a coin at the highest level of 64 I will attempt to include it in my collection. I will not collect a coin below pcgs 64. $1 Gold is a very difficult series to complete! I'm focusing on the very best of each date and mintmark. I was lucky to be able to have purchased the 1854-S pcgs 65+ ex. Pittman from 10/97 Akers sale! It's a coin David Akers always told me if I ever got an opportunity to buy, to do so! It's original, great skin with a golden color and a full strike! David Akers had been my mentor on rare coins for the past thirty years. With David's passing, Doug Winter will assume the mentoring role. I have TWO NGC coins in my date set of $1G, one is the 1855-D NGC 64+/CAC which is the finest known and it is the rarest in UNC in the entire $1G series as well as the rarest Dahlonega coin in the $1G series in UNC! In Doug Winters new third edition of Dallonega Gold the cover is my 1855-D $1G NGC 64+/CAC coin.The SECOND coin is the 1849-C NGC 64+/CAC also the finest known! It should be noted that 53 out of 54 of the coins in my $1G set are CAC'ed!!
