Condition Census early gold! The early U.S. gold coins are among the most important in our history, and they have always been high demand rarities. The content of U.S. gold coins was lowered in 1834 (the first devaluation in a minor preview of things to come!) Consequently, many of the pre-1834 gold coins hit the melting pot and survival rates for early gold coins are very low. They’re rare and desirable in all grades. Choice mint state examples are major gold coin rarities. This specimen is a spectacular MS64 with clean surfaces, a bold strike, and gorgeous original luster. In 34 years, PCGS has only graded seven examples higher so this is a “top ten” Condition Census specimen.
