1851 GOLD 1$
áI tried to put this info on my coin in the MY COLLECTIONS section but was unable to make it work. I said in my blog dated May 6 that I would tell some more about this coin, so here it is. Sorry for any confusion.
UNC DETAILS IMPROPERLY CLEANED
This coin was designed by James B. Longacre. It's weight is 1.672 grams. It's composition is 90% gold and 10% copper giving it a net weight of .04837 oz. of pure gold. it has a diameter of 13 mm with reeded edge. As you can see, this is a very tiny coin. I can imagine it was very easy to lose this coin. This design, known as the Liberty Head, was made from 1849-1854. As I stated in my blog about this coin, I purchased it in this graded state to get into a coin design I wanted but couldn't afford at the time, in a problem free state.
Thanks for the pictures. They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
Wonderful piece of history. It could have been handled by Mark Twain or James Marshall!
Thanks for the story, stats and pictures!
