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