Lot Description
1854 $1 Large Eagle Octagonal 1 Dollar, BG-504, Low R.5, MS61 PCGS. The reverse of this famous Period One issue imitates the obverse design of U.S. Assay Office slugs, which at the time were a familiar sight in San Francisco commerce. Most small denomination private gold pieces chose to imitate the Federal gold dollar instead. For BG-504, the major devices are well engraved, while the stars and legends are crudely aligned, probably by a different hand. This apricot-gold piece is problem-free aside from a small spot below the hair bun.
