Item Description:
Hailing from a tiny original mintage of just 1,460 pieces, the 1856-D is a leading rarity in the Dahlonega Mint gold dollar series. The bright, wheat-gold surfaces are well-defined despite being weakly struck as is typical of the issue. The eye appeal is quite strong considering the grade level and is enhanced by the absence of all but light wear evidence of its brief time in circulation.
