The 1854-S is among the more available early date eagles from this mint but it is the most in-demand due to its status as the first coin of this denomination struck at this mint. With the 1854-S quarter eagles and half eagles unavailable, only the eagle and double eagle from this year areseen and the former is much more affordable than the latter. The 1854-S eagle is scarce in properly graded AU55 to AU58 and extremely rare in full Mint State with just two or three known.

This is a very choice, original example with lovely deep green-gold and orange color which is accentuated by darker hues on the relief details. There is a good deal of underlying luster and some minor scuffs in the fields. The strike is sharp and I believe that this coin is very, very solid for the grade.

A CAC-approved AU58 example of this date, if available, might cost as much as twice what this AU55 is priced at and it probably would not be much –if any–finer. A great value and a neat, historic Gold Rush era artifact.

CAC has approved four in this grade with three finer
