Liberty Head Type 1 Gold Dollar 1849-1854. The 1849 version of this coin actually has two different varieties. One with an open wreath and one with it closed. The open wreath is shown in the image. If this coin had a "C" denoting Charlotte NC as the mint that made it, it would be an excessively rare piece, commanding tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars.
It isn’t every day one encounters Charlotte mint gold with this type of eye appeal. Superbly struck of bright yellow gold it shimmers in the NGC holder. With just under 65K minted, around 400 are known in all grades combined with this being a top 10 example known.
