1861 G$1 MS64 PCGS #7558

Pedigree: Gold Coast Collection (2022) Garrett and Guth in their "Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins" mention, "The 1861 gold dollar is also very desirable as an example of Civil-War-era coinage. Most examples seen of this date are well struck but sometimes come from very heavily clashed dies. Occasionally, it is possible to distinguish a full outline and even parts of the word LIBERTY on the reverse." The coin listed here was not struck with clashed dies and has the standard reverse die alignment.

1862 G$1 MS64 PCGS #7560

Very Rare Doubled Date. 2/7/2022 Research Update: 598 individual serial numbers (PCGS, NGC, ANACS, IGC) have now been reviewed with again only 3 confirmed examples of the Double Date variety. The coin here has a significantly higher grade than the other two confirmed examples (ANACS XF40 and AU58). Two other examples (XF45 and AU55) have yet to be confirmed. Research to date 4/6/2021; I have examined 582 photos from various sources (auction house photos, third party grading service websites [PCGS/NGC/ANACS], Ebay, dealer photos, etc.) and found only 3 photos showing the double date variety. ANACS lists the variety whereas PCGS and NGC do not. ANACS only lists 4 known graded pieces (1 ea, XF40, XF45, AU55 and AU58) of which I have located 2 photos, the AU58 and the XF40. The third photo is that shown above, an MS64. ANACS was not able to furnish the serial numbers of the other two pieces. The data I have is on an Excel spreadsheet and duplicate serial numbers have been removed so that the photos I examined are discrete entities. There is, however, still the possibility of duplicate coins due to resubmissions, although I believe the number is small in comparison to the aggregate total. 12/11/20 Research update. I have expanded my net to include 11 auction houses, dealers and grading houses with detail photos and to date have examined 570 graded photos XF40 to MS67 (Damaged, detail, and coins with blurry photos or without serial numbers have been excluded from my research). I have found photos of two of the four ANACS coins (XF40 and AU58) but have not found any other Double Date coins. {I also found a total of nine Double Die Obverse coins (two of which were not identified as such). 44 DDO coins are currently listed on the PCGS, NGC and ANACS websites.} I can only confirm the existence of three Breen 6073 double date coins, the two ANACS coins and the coin listed here. [10/27/20 Research to date, I have only found references to 4 other Doubled Date (Breen 6073) 1862 Gold Dollars, none grading over AU58. ANACS is the only third party grader that currently recognizes this variety and has graded a single coin in each XF40, XF45, AU55 and AU58. Presently, I have looked at MS60-MS67 graded coins (PCGS,NGC,ANACS,IGC) - 400+ photos - from 3 auction houses dating back to 2007 and not found another mint state Doubled Date coin. (Photos prior to 2007 lack the quality to distinguish details of the date).] Q.David Bowers' "A Guide Book of Gold Dollars" and Garrett and Guth's "Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins 1795-1933", make reference to the Doubled Date and the Double Die Obverse as interesting varieties, yet nothing beyond the fact that they exist. "Walter Breens' Complete Encyclopedia Of U.S. And Colonial Coins" states the coin is, "Very rare. Date first punched too high, then corrected lower." Pedigree; Maurice Storck Collection.
