Varieties of 1854-O eagle are known with a Small Date and a Large Date. They are of fairly equal rarity although the Small Date tends to be seen less often in very high grades. The Large Date is typically seen in EF40 to AU53 grades and it is rare in properly graded AU58. I know of just three or four in Uncirculated, all of which I’ve handled at one time or another.

This “gem slider” has nearly full luster but just the slightest amount of friction on the high spots of the obverse. The color is a pleasing medium green-gold and there are no signs of this coin having ever been dipped or processed. It is among the two or three nicest AU58 examples of this date which I have seen.

No PCGS AU58 has sold at auction since Heritage 5/05: 8767 which brought $5.060.

The last PCGS AU58 example of this variety that I handled (ex RYK collection) received multiple orders within minutes of being posted on my website.

CAC has approved four in this grade with one finer (best is MS61).
