Gold Dollar - The 1867 Gold Dollar is rare in all conditions.
Most saved pieces are in Mint State with just 36 certified
in all circulated grades. In MS 65 and above, 14 have been
certified by both grading services. Most pieces are well
struck from clashed dies. Many are prooflike and difficult
to distinguish from actual proof coins.
In 1867 the Tenure of Office Act was passed
over the veto of President Johnson. It denied the president
the power to remove an officer who was appointed by a previous
president. It was later repealed and a similar law was declared
unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.
Nebraska became the 37th state of the Union,
and the Alaskan territory, called “Johnson’s
Polar Bear Garden,” was purchased from Russia.
