1856 Liberty Eagle. MS-61 (PCGS). OGH. Prooflike deep golden surfaces display rich luster and bold orange highlights. Nicely struck. <strong>Errant top of 1 </strong>protrudes from the dentils beneath the 5 in the date. An intriguing and evidently rare variety, first noted by us in our sale of the Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection, Part II, October 1999, lot 1446, but not mentioned in Breen's <em>Encyclopedia </em>(1988). About as nice as you will find in a Mint State-61 holder.
