These little gold pieces are a must for any U.S. Gold type collector! The Type II or Small Head Indian Princess Gold Dollar Coins were only in production for two years, but were produced at all five mints (Philadelphia, Charlotte, Dahlonega, New Orleans and San Francisco) and are considered scarce, especially in higher grades or with the S Mint Mark. Due to the design, this coin was weakly struck, especially noticeable on high points, the date, and two L's of DOLLAR. The Type 2 Gold coin was replaced by the Type 3 Large Head Indian Princess Gold Coin that addressed design flaws.
