The 1878 Gold Dollar has an extremely low mintage of only 3,000 coins. This is one of the finest 1878 Gold Dollars I have seen. This coin does show a grade of MS64 however it was from the Generation 1.2 holder that was only used from 1986 to 1989. This coin has not been touched for over 30 years and grading standards have certainly loosened up over those years. Price guide in MS64 is pretty low, but it jumps up to $4,500 in MS65. This is the perfect coin for someone who wants an attractive coin for the grade.
