The 1855-O is numismatically significant as a one-year type as it is the only Type Two gold dollar from this mint. It is available, from time to time, in the higher AU grades but it has become hard to find with choice, original surfaces.

This very pleasing example shows a mixture of orange-gold and medium green color. There are flashes of semi-reflective luster in the protected areas and the surfaces are choice save for a small mark in the lower right obverse field.

Three PCGS AU55 examples sold at auction in 2013 but none were CAC approved; these brought $2,703, $3,055 and $3,055, respectively.

Probably fewer than 10% of all 1855-O dollars graded AU55 and AU58 will ever be approved by CAC and the few with stickers bring significant premiums.

CAC has approved seven with just three finer.
