Desirable Classic Head Design, Choice Original, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Well Struck. As a date, the 1838 is more rare than the 1834 Plain 4, 1835, or 1836 but not quite as scarce as the 1837. 1838 also saw the introduction of branch mint production at Charlotte and Dahlonega. This surviving example is well struck and offers frosty cartwheel luster. Surfaces are essentially blemish free and important considering the large amount of open field space above the smaller eagle device.
A very pleasing AU58 graded specimen that would be ideal for a type set. Housed in new large font NGC holder. An important better United States gold offering. PLEASE CONTACT WITH ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE ALLOW 24 HOURS IN RESPONSE TO ANY QUESTIONS. PLEASE NOTIFY US IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO RETURN AN ITEM.
