Gold Dollar - The 1861-D Gold Dollar had a unknown mintage
because it was struck by the Confederacy after they took
over the Mint at Dahlonega. It is estimated that 1,000 coins
were struck. The coins are weakly struck with the U of UNITED
always missing. It is included in the 100 Greatest U.S.
Coins by Garrett and Guth. Thirty examples have been certified
in Mint State, the finest of which is a single MS65 example.
