      Comments about $1 Liberty Head Gold - Type 1 - Extra Fine:

      I bought this beautiful coin to have a piece of US history during Northern California's gold rush days. I would have loved to have a 1949 coin but recieved 1951. I would recommend this coin to any collector for its beauty and historical significance.
