1849 G$1 Small Head, No L NGC MS64

DLRC #: 86864 // PCGS #: 7501

A crisply struck, orange-gold example. A spidery crack runs across the top of the reverse, perhaps accounting for the rarity of the variety. Breen computes a mintage figure of 1,000 coins for this variety, implying that they were all struck on May 8, 1849. Based on the number of coins that have been certified by the grading services (221 at NGC and 257 at PCGS), this may be an incorrect assumption.
