    1854 Double Eagle, AU55
    Scarcer Large Date Variant

    1854 $20 Large Date AU55 NGC. There is a single obverse die for the 1854 double eagle that features the Large Date logotype. In addition to the prominent date numerals, a small die lump is visible on Liberty's neck just left of the lowest hair curl, and several short, diagonal die lines appear just above and to the right of it. The 1 in the date nearly touches the bust truncation, while all Small Date coins show the numeral distant. The Large Date 1854 is famously the rarer of the two date types, seldom offered in AU and rare in Mint State. This Choice About Uncirculated representative displays partially lustrous yellow-gold fields and bold design elements that exhibit little high-point wear. Scattered abrasions are normal for the type.
