||1862 G$1 MS63+ NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Hoarding of gold coinage during the Civil War resulted in increased gold dollar production in 1862 in an effort to resupply the economy with coinage. However, many of those coins were also hoarded. Mint State survivors are plentiful, but most are moderately abraded. This Plus-graded example shows pale olive-gold luster and bold design elements. The surfaces are attractively smooth. 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.
