Lot Description
1854 $1 AU53 NGC. Apparently 10,000 pieces of this date were shipped to the Orient in November 1854--a fact that would go a long way toward explaining the rarity of this issue--rarity that seems to go beyond its official mintage of 33,140 pieces (which, by the way, is higher than many of its contemporaries). Sharply struck with medium gray color, some charcoal color is noted in the recesses on each side. There are a few marks in the fields on either side of this important piece.
