***Auction Highlight*** 1855-d Ty II Dahlonega Gold Dollar $1 Graded ms61 details By SEGS. HIGHLIGHT OF THE MONTH – Up for Auction is an 1855-d Dahlonega Gold Dollar, Type II. The short-lived Type Two gold dollar subset, which ran briefly from 1854 to 1856, is always popular. Collectors can focus on putting together a complete set of six pieces, or they might just want one high-grade example. Alternatively, they may focus more narrowly on obtaining coins from the mints of their choosing: Charlotte, Dahlonega, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. Southern Type Two gold dollar production took place entirely within the year 1855, with the North Carolina and Georgia issues standing out as the two most challenging issues in the series and the 1855-O being relatively accessible. Between the D and C-mint issues, the Dahlonega 1855 gold dollar is far scarcer than its Charlotte counterpart, claiming the lowest mintage of the series with only 1,811 coins struck. Doug Winter estimates 75 to 100 1855-D gold dollars survive, mostly in VF and XF grades, writing in 2013: "There are an estimated four or five known in Uncirculated and this includes two that have been graded MS64 by the services." Although PCGS and NGC each now show two coins at this level, that is likely the result of crossovers and resubmissions. The Coin at hand, while it is details due to some light hairlines, it has virtually no abrasions and zero wear making it deserving of its ms63 Details Grade.Both sides are unimaginably clean and attractive, strongly struck, and attractive for an 1855-D representative. Light yellow-gold color paints satiny surfaces, and noticeable proof like reflectivity exists in the fields. Both sides are boldly defined, with the exception of Liberty's upper curls and the 8 in the date, as usual. Clashed with a die crack from the rim up along the right side of the mintmark to the ribbon. I wish you good luck in obtaining this fabled rarity. I have included a picture of an ms61 for your comparison. A Corey's Pick, Bid to Win, Don't let it get Away, you might not find its equal Coin. I give this coin my highest recommendation
