Title: Round Dollar
Rarity 8!

Description: 1854 F D round One Dollar, BG-601. PCGS F12. Rarity 8. Even in Gold Rush San Francisco, the jewelers who made small California gold pieces were not certain that a dollar emulating the U.S. coin, but containing less gold, could be minted with perfect safety, because of a certain well-known law. Consequently, all round dollars are rare, and Period One round dollars are rarer than those of Period Two. Thus, they are the key to every type set of small California gold coins, from the short set of six pieces—one of each denomination and shape—to every larger type and Registry™ Set. Of course they are highly desired for complete sets as well. Small head, 13 five-pointed stars; 6 pairs of berries on each branch. Unsigned, but same head as on Frontier & Deviercy’s signed octagonal dollars. Even wear; reverse clear, but weaker on hair and borders. Yellow gold with bluish toning around periphery both sides. PCGS F12 William C. O’Connor (PCGS# 10512). PCGS POP 1 + 1.
