Description 1861 G$1 MS65 NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. With a mintage of more than 527,000 pieces, the 1861 is one of the more plentiful gold dollar issues of the period, and is ideal for the type collector seeking a coin from the Civil War era. The date's availability, however, drops off sharply at the MS65 grade level and finer pieces are decidedly rare. This coin exhibits frosty, nearly unabraded surfaces, with soft green-gold color. Census: 33 in 65 (1 in 65 S), 10 finer (8/14). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $7.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2820.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
