Lot Description
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.&nbsp;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.
