    1854 Liberty Round Dollar, AU58
    BG-605, Rare Period One Variety

    1854 $1 Liberty Round 1 Dollar, BG-605, Low R.7, AU58 NGC. All Period One round dollars are rare. The second edition of Breen-Gillio (page 94) estimates approximately 50 survivors for all varieties. Struck during an era when the West Coast gold rush economy was in dire need of low denomination coins, BG-605 was used in commerce, and the only Uncirculated example listed in the Breen-Gillio census is the O'Connor example.

    The present near-Mint representative has a good strike and semiprooflike fields. The centers are yellow-gold and the borders exhibit lilac-red. No marks are apparent. Minor flan imperfections are relegated to the fields near the chin and the IF in CALIFORNIA.

    The present lot is the only example of BG-605 listed in the (11/15) NGC Census. The (11/15) PCGS Population Report shows a total of seven pieces, with the single finest as AU58. Thus, this lot is tied with one other example as the finest certified by either major service.
    From The Elbert Henry Gary Collection. (NGC ID# 2BM7, PCGS# 10521)

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
