1853 Octagonal $1. BG-519. Rarity-4-. Die State I. Liberty Head. AU-58 (PCGS). OGH. Hart's "Coins of the Golden West." 1900 Alaska-Indian series. 1/2 Pinch. MS-66 (NGC). A mechanical error on the PCGS insert gives the grade of this coin as "MS58." The centers are particularly sharp in detail, while the peripheries are more or less bold over most devices. Lovely honey-rose color throughout, with no troublesome abrasions to a satiny sheen.
