The most underrated and undervalued gold dollar struck at the Dahlonega Mint. The overall quality of the surfaces and strike on most of the 1850-D gold dollars is low. This date is very rare when found with good luster and good eye appeal. Original, uncleaned examples show a range of coloration of deep green-gold and medium to deep orange-gold. There are roughly 100 surviving specimens with roughly 6% being Mint State.
