First year of issue.

Superior luster gleams from even, lemon-gold surfaces. Terrific eye appeal and technical quality for the grade! The 1849-D is the most plentiful gold dollar from this mint, but Uncirculated pieces are nonetheless elusive.
An absolutely stunning type one gold dollar with superb, original surfaces. While there are other pieces technically graded higher, we view it as a crime to tamper with this beautifully preserved old green holder. The coin is truly special with such stunning satiny luster and no noticeable marks. CAC approved for quality.

Estimates range from 10-15% of the coins produced at this period to be free of such obstructions and this coin is the first we have handled with this appearance in years. CAC approved for quality.
