Lot 1094
1864 G$1 MS61 NGC
Hoarding of gold and silver coins began at the outbreak of the Civil War in April 1861 and grew in intensity until all suddenly disappeared in 1862. After about June, 1862, the Philadelphia Mint was, so far as gold was concerned, merely an establishment conducted for the benefit of New York banks and bullion dealers. West of the Mississippi, however, where large amounts of gold were coined in San Francisco, most gold and silver remained in circulation. The war panic in the metropolitan areas of the Eastern states seemingly did not find its counterpart in the commerce in the Far West.

This is a lustrous example with a hint of reddish patina. Slightly soft at the centers, but minimally marked for the assigned grade. An appealing Mint State example of which only 5,900 business strikes were produced. (PCGS 7558)
