Description

1861 $2.50 Gold Type 2 NGC MS61. A very popular and highly collectible gold coin, specifically because of the year in which it was minted marking the dawn of our nation’s unrest and the commencement of the Civil War. This example has retained the richness many gold coins reveal under certain environmental conditions. Many suggest this feature is also owing to the type of copper used tin the mix when striking these coins. NGC Price Guide published price is $900. (NGC #1969956-010)
