This is a value play. This better date is really tough to find in MS64 condition. Only 228,250 were minted, many were melted down and never circulated. The denomination was created as a means of exhausting an overage in gold supply due to the 1849 California Gold Rush.They were never intended for general use in commerce as the amount easily equated to a month's wage during the time of issue - making them impractical to carry as a coin. PCGS Encapsulation offers protection and guarantees the MS-64 condition of the coin. Conservatively graded in our opinion, PQ++ This is an amazing coin that's choice for the grade. Struck at the Philadelphia Mint. Obverse: Depicts Liberty striding forward holding a torch and an olive branch with the U.
Capitol building in the backdrop. Reverse: Features an eagle in flight against the sun in the background. Beautiful color and very rare in this condition.
