1854 $1 Gold Liberty. PCGS graded MS-64. CAC Approved. Type 1. Well struck and mostly untoned. Aesthetically tempting, as fine a looking MS64 with full strike as you are apt to see, and all the while saturated with bright golden bloom, little in the way of toning. Something perhaps worth pausing to study is the fact that all devices were struck with the usual and desirable consistency of this year, that is, sharply by the dies, which then left behind bold elements of detail throughout. Last year of the truncated Liberty Head Type, which ran from 1849 to 1854 before the mint substituted the Indian Princess head of Liberty in 1854. Pop 168; 39 finer (PCGS # 7525) .
Estimated Value $1,250 - 1,300.

Realized $1,438
