My 1856-D gold dollar newp. Found in the wild! *Update* now with CAC*
I just received word that my 1856-D PCGS XF40 received a CAC sticker. One of only five in all grades. A total of 101 PCGS/NGC grading events.
Very happy! It adds a little more to a great story.
I have been looking for this date in a more affordable grade for a very long time.
I bought this one from a non-collector who was liquidating his uncle's hoard. The family discovered a huge accumulation of coins in the uncle's apartment. He was a hoarder and they literally had to climb over mountains of stuff just to get in the place. He had some better date silver coins but most of the gold was generic common date stuff, except for this.
Doug Winter estimates that there are about 100 of these in all grades. Now there is 101! Original mintage was 1,460.
