1854-O $5.00 NGC AU55

While common compared to such issues as the 1846-O and 1851-O half eagles, the 1854-O is far scarcer than the 1844-O. But the 1854-O is much harder to locate in higher grades than is generally realized and it is a genuinely scarce coin in the higher AU grades. This example has lovely delicate light green-gold color atop very lustrous surfaces and it is high end for the date and grade. I think this is a very undervalued issue, as are all choice No Motto half eagles from this mint.
