1852 G$1 MS68 PCGS #7517

1852 Gold $1 Type One MS68 Ex: Samuel J. Berngard { PCGS-3 } (Oct'2008) This veritable jewel radiates its amazingly rich gold luster that drenches both sides of a needle-sharp impression of the dies. Hints of lilac grace the recesses of Liberty's hair. The overall visual impression is that of an ancient carved gem. Liberty's features stand boldly forth with their subtle frostiness, her locks and coronet are minutely defined. The reverse wreath and outer legend are diamond-clear, DOLLAR is slightly less vividly distinguished. This lustrous beauty presents James Barton Longacre's design at its finest.

1854 G$1 Type 2 MS65 PCGS #7531

1854 Gold $1 Type Two MS65 Ex: Madison Collection { PCGS-3 } (Jan'2008) Exceptional first year issue Type 2 gold dollar with brilliant apricot-gold toning and mint-green. This gem bears a superior strike for the issue and type that has been traditionally plagued with weak central definition. The Indian's bonnet displays excellent detail, as do all the letters in DOLLAR and digits in the date, and all elements of the wreath, with just a bit of softness in the hair by the temple. The patina is simply outstanding, with vibrant luster adorning both sides. Unusual for this series, is this gem's surfaces unblemished by the typical die-clashes, indicative of a very early strike.
