CoinWorld - An 1855 Indian Head, Small Head gold dollar brought $329,000 on July 16 at Legend Rare Coin Auctions Regency 39 sale in Las Vegas.

The rare dollar, graded Proof 65+ Deep Cameo by Professional Coin Grading Service with a green Certified Acceptance Corp. sticker, is from a reported mintage of just 10 pieces, of which Legend reports that seven are accounted for.



Legend's cataloger observes, "Incredibly deep, reflective mirrors show that the dies and planchet were carefully polished prior to striking," before praising its bold strike and frosted devices. A weak 8 in the date is seen on all Proof examples of this date.

The coin in the auction was once part of the landmark collection assembled by Floyd T. Starr. It was offered at Heritage's 2005 sale of the Gold Rush Collection where then graded PCGS Proof 65 it realized $287,000. Two tiny flakes, below OF and below the right ribbon end (as struck) on the reverse, are pedigree markers.
