1854-O Liberty Eagle. Large Date. Winter Variety Three. AU-55 (NGC). A very distinct variety in the early Liberty Eagle series, the 1854-O Large Date was struck using a date logotype that was originally intended for use in production of the 1854 Seated Liberty Silver Dollar. The '54-O LD is rarer than the '54-O Small Date in an absolute sense with no more than 125 coins believed extant in all grades (per Doug Winter, 2006).<br /> An orange-khaki example, both sides retain flickers of original luster that outline most of the devices both in the centers and around the peripheries. Suitably bold in strike, with only light wear to report and no individually mentionable abrasions.
