Title: 1856-D Gold $1. Winter 8-K; Only Die Pair. MS-62 PCGS..
Header: Lustrous Uncirculated 1856-D Gold $1 Tied for Finest Seen by PCGS
Description: A rare prize indeed! This warm honey-gold specimen enjoys pale rose and powder-blue highlights with splashes of frosty orange completing the colorful pastel-like display. The strike is typical of the 1856-D gold dollar, soft and wanting for sharpness – not blunt and unappealing, but not as sharp as some dates. The surfaces hold up admirably to close-in examination, with unbroken luster and no marks of merit the reward for the viewer’s diligence. Only 1,460 examples of the date were produced. Douglas Winter considers this “the third rarest gold dollar from this mint, trailing only the 1855-D and the 1861-D.” It typically ranges VF to AU, mostly at the high end of the range, and Uncirculated coins are thought to number fewer than 10 pieces. Our advice to interested bidders is to act now on your instincts, or face a long period of bidder remorse that could last until the next Mint State 1856-D gold dollar comes along.
