RARE CONDITION CENSUS PCGS/CAC MS64 1854-S GOLD DOLLAR
This numismatically significant issue is both a one-year type and a first-year-of-issue. The 1854-S dollar is seen from time to time in the lower Uncirculated grades but it is very rare in MS64 and above. I am aware of just one Gem (the fabulous PCGS MS65+ which realized $56,400 in the Duckor sale, held in August 2015) plus as many as four or five in properly graded MS64.
This wonderful borderline Gem is fresh-to-the-market and it is most notable for its stunning color which features drips of fiery reddish-gold on the obverse and the reverse. The strike is as sharp as one could hope for and were it not for two tiny parallel lines at Liberty’s nose, I believe this piece would have graded MS65.
A CAC approved PCGS MS64 sold for $14,100 as Heritage 2016 ANA: 4251 but, in my opinion, it was nowhere near as choice as the present piece.
If you collect San Francisco gold or if you specialize in gold dollars, you will recognize the significance of this wonderful little coin.
CAC has approved three in this grade with one finer (MS65+).
