Lot Description
1854 $1 Liberty Round 1 Dollar, BG-602, High R.6, AU55 PCGS. Close FD initials below the bust. An orange-gold example that has substantial remaining prooflike luster and only faint slide marks in the fields. A high grade for this variety, which circulated in the bay area before the new San Francisco Mint produced sufficient lower denomination coinage. Even the more available Period One Gold Dollars are extremely popular, and rare varieties that approach Mint State are desirable. Encapsulated in a prior generation PCGS holder. Population: 1 in 55, 1 finer (3/04). Ex: Lee and Shaffer Collections Sale (Superior, 9/88), lot 112; Superior, 2/91, lot 3105, which realized $3,575.
