Item Description:
A new listing in the PCGS holder census, this piece is housed in a PCGS Generation 1.1 holder. This style of holder was only in use for a week or so in mid-February 1986 and is very scarce. The coin and holder combination is an exciting opportunity for the advanced collector of Southern gold. The 1854-D is the only Dahlonega issue in the $3 gold series. From a scant mintage of 1,120 coins very few survive in high grade. The present example is well-detailed for the grade as well as the issue with light wear on the high points and minimal, inconsequential circulation marks. Pleasing tangerine-gold surfaces offer considerable remaining luster and lovely eye appeal!
