    1854 Octagonal Gold Dollar, Prooflike MS63
    BG-532, A Top-Graded Example at NGC

    1854 $1 Liberty Octagonal 1 Dollar, BG-532, Low R.4, MS63 NGC. This Period One gold dollar is the work of Antoine Louis Nouizillet, a French jeweler who worked at 58 Kearny Street from 1852 to 1854 before partnering with F. Routhier later that year. The Jay Roe Collection contained an AU58 example of BG-532, and the catalog noted: "The vast majority of this variety is found in circulated condition ... ." NGC and PCGS report two and three Select submissions, respectively with a single Choice example finer at the latter service (11/15). Hallmarks of this conditionally rare octagonal gold dollar include razor-sharp design detail and overt prooflike contrast, particularly on the obverse.
    From The Elbert Henry Gary Collection. (NGC ID# 2BLX, PCGS# 10509)
