$2.50 1842-D AU 55 NGC This is a low mintage coin This is a treasure lot

Nice luster Pleasing pale greenish-yellow surfaces. There were 4,623 coins minted for this issue. The Dahlonega Mint had a significant quantity of California deposits following the discovery of gold that state in 1848 which calculated to about 20% of the facility's lifetime deposits. Much of this gold was brought to the mint by miners who had worked the Dahlonega mines prior to trying their luck in California. Unfortunately, the California deposits dwindled after 1854, when the San Francisco Branch Mint, which was much more convenient to the California gold fields, was opened.
