Seller: cole.person2012 (319) 100%, Location: Gonzales, Texas, Ships to: US, Item: 282659723906 We are pleased to offer this 1850 California Gold token up for bids. This Eureka token features a scarce D.G.W. reverse and is struck in solid yellow gold. Check out the pictures of this beautiful and popular type! This vintage piece is catalogued as an 1850 Round ONE D.G.W. It features a Minerva Head #5 with a Bear #5 reverse. This is an odd classification as there is no bear on the reverse. This piece is an old backdated issue. I was able to attribute this token on Mike Locke's excellent calgoldcoin site. These tokens are known to be good gold of about 22 Karat fineness or better. Locke states that they are 24K. Our example weighs .95 grams and is smaller than a dime. I am told that the D.G.W. stands for "Dollar Gold Weight." This is an attractive uncirculated piece with original surfaces and much luster. It is well struck. So much so that the rim is raised up. Mint error enthusiasts sometimes refer to this as a "Shark Fin Rim." Please view pictures to determine condition and attribution for yourself. The coin pictured is the exact item you will receive. I have had one report of these tokens being sold by Dixie Gunworks in Tennessee in the 1960's. Expect free First Class shipping and secure packaging. Residents of Texas must pay sales tax. Dime and rulers are not included with your purchase. We are not responsible for grading service returns. Payment is requested within three days of auction's end. Sorry, no international shipping. Please view our selection of gold, silver, coins, tokens and more. We love rare and unusual numismatic items and try to offer a few every week. Please check back with us . Thanks for looking and good luck! Certification: Uncertified, Grade: Please view pictures., Year: 1850. Backdated issue., Circulated/Uncirculated: Uncirculated, Mint Location: California, Composition: Gold, Country/Region of Manufacture: United States
