    1854 Liberty Octagonal Dollar, Near-Mint
    Eagle and Shield Motif, BG-504

    1854 $1 Liberty Octagonal Dollar, Eagle, BG-504, Low R.5, AU58 PCGS. All Period One octagonal dollar varieties are scarce and in demand, but those with distinctive types are especially esteemed. The reverse of BG-504 imitates the iconic eagle-and-shield emblem of the U.S. Assay Office fifty dollar "slugs," a mainstay of West Coast commerce during the Gold Rush. This is a momentarily circulated caramel-gold example with moderate laminations (as made) on the left reverse field. Population: 10 in 58, 22 finer (5/16). (NGC ID# 2BKZ, PCGS# 10481)
