G$1 1861 PCGS MS-65
What a phenomenal early Civil War era piece. Its amazing that there are any GEMS at all from that time period. This coin is solid for the grade. The surfaces are clean and have a satiny texture. A bold luster shows off the killer orange/pale reddish original gold colors. There are NO carbon spots. A few die clashes are visible on the obverse. Miss Liberty and the details are exceptionally struck. PCGS 27, NGC 28.
