1854 $20 Liberty. Small date. NGC graded MS-62. There are two major varieties of the 1854 double eagle. The first and most common variety is the 1854 with Small date. Most of the 1854 double eagles seen are of this variety. The overall rarity is very similar to that of the 1852 and 1853 issues, according to Garrett and Guth in their U.S. Gold Coins reference work. The surfaces of this piece are remarkably clean for the period and show thick, frosted mint luster, somewhat muted in areas but covering the surface completely. Light reddish-gold color is seen over both obverse and reverse, and the striking details are sharply defined throughout. There is a faint mark on Liberty's cheek. A few light luster grazes around the eagle on the reverse, as well. Pop 4; none finer at NGC. (PCGS # 8911) .
Estimated Value $10,000 - 12,000.

Realized $14,375
