1853/'2' Liberty Eagle. Breen-6905. AU-58 (NGC). Otherwise sharply struck, we note only minor softness of detail to the obverse stars that is not at all uncommon in an 1850s-dated Eagle. Suitably lustrous for the grade, with a softly frosted texture and no significant abrasions. A loupe reveals traces of what might be remnants of an underdigit within and below the lower loop of the primary digit 3 in the date.
