One of the few major varieties in the Liberty Eagle series, the 1853/2 was first reported in 1960 in an auction sale. This variety remains scarce in numismatic circles and has long been popular with advanced collectors. With Uncs exceedingly rare, this attractive AU is sure to see spirited bidding among specialists. It is a mostly lustrous, rose-gold coin that retains plenty of mint frost on both sides. Boldly defined throughout, with no individually mentionable abrasions apart from a few shallow scuffs in the right-obverse field that we mention solely for accuracy. Original and attractive.
