Description: An altogether pleasing golden-orange specimen of this elusive and somewhat underappreciated Dahlonega Mint issue. Much satiny mint frost engages the peripheral regions, and the strike is finer than typical for the date, here nearly full throughout. No marks of measure come to light under low magnification, and the underlying luster is sufficient enough to make the viewer look twice for that hint of rub that defines the grade. One of 8,382 examples struck, down 13,000 and more pieces from the previous year’s output. Just a dozen grading events – submission numbers that may include duplication – are recorded for this date in Mint State, none of those finer than MS-63. Savvy collectors often turn to high-level AU examples when seeking rare coins, and this lot provides just such an opportunity.
