Lot Description
1854 $1 Large Eagle Octagonal 1 Dollar, BG-504, Low R.5, MS61 NGC. The reverse of this design is an obvious borrowing from the Humbert-Assay Office fifty dollar slugs of 1851 and 1852, adding to its popularity. This sharp MS61 example is nearly as fine as the Jay Roe coin, an MS62 PCGS. Areas of yellow-gold alternate with copper-orange and lilac, with only a few well-hidden ticks that define the grade. Census: 1 in 61, 1 finer (8/10).
