1854 Type Two G$1
Frosty and bright, with no signs of toning on this exceptional example. The strike is rather sharp too with all the curls on Liberty's head clear and the digits of the date crisply struck up. Struck on a classic yellow-gold planchet, with no flaws worthy of note, as the surfaces approach the Gem level. An early die state as there are virtually no traces of clashing here, normally Liberty's head is entirely outlined on the reverse. This piece is essentially free of this normally-seen distraction. For this rare Type Two gold dollar issue, the present coin is certainly a prize for the specialist. (PCGS 7531) Choice Uncirculated
