The 1855-O gold dollar is a numismatically significant one-year type. It is the only gold dollar from New Orleans which uses the short-lived Type Two design. It is reasonably common in the lower AU grades but examples with nice color and choice surfaces have become hard to locate.

This well struck, frosty example is kept from an otherwise-deserved AU55 grades by a few small marks in the left obverse field. The color is a pleasing medium orange-gold which is deepest at the reverse border.

Since the beginning of 2007, there have been 18 auction records for AU53′s of this date. Only six have been graded by PCGS and the last record was Heritage 9/13: 5031 at $1,939.

An affordable but well above-average example of this popular issue.
