1855 Liberty Eagle. MS-61 (NGC). A common date in uncommon condition as so few of these survived without evidence of circulation. This piece has full mint luster and a good strike. The surfaces are pleasing as the marks blend well into the fields and devices. Always popular for Mint Engraver James B. Longacre's slanting 55 in the date, a little personal touch to the otherwise austere date logo punches.
