Considerably rarer than the 1853, the 1854 probably saw widespread exportation at the time of issue. Today, survivors are scarce to rare in all grades, and Bowers believes that the 1854 may be the rarest P-mint Seated dollar after the 1851 and 1852. This bold-looking example retains nearly complete striking definition save for the digits of the date which are a bit weak. Each side is colorfully toned in mixed iridescent hues from years of storage in a paper envelope (accompanies lot). A couple of microscopic surface scratches can be seen under the date with magnification, these being mentioned as a future pedigree identifier. (PCGS 6942) Choice About Uncirculated
