Item Description:
A wonderfully colorful and delightfully original example of this rare Turban Head date. Gorgeous, orange-gold tones change to sunny yellow in the protected areas. Wonderful visual appeal. The opportunities to purchase original Mint State early gold pieces is becoming rarer and rarer, in particular because so many coins are being dipped to improve their grade – not their appearance. Happily, this coin has been left in its pure, natural state and it should fetch a nice premium as a result...
