The 1854-O is numismatically as the only Three Dollar gold piece from the New Orleans mint. It is reasonably common in lower grades and while the number of slabbed AU53 and AU55 coins is great, very few of these are choice and original,

This is an especially nice example for the grade with lovely soft pastel undertones below rich natural green-gold hues. The strike is sharp for the issue with a full date and some detail on the bow; some of the reverse detail has been removed by die lapping as on most 1854-O Three Dollar gold pieces.

Only three PCGS AU53 examples have sold at auction since 2013 and none were CAC approved; these realized $4,994, $5,288 and $4,994, respectively.

This is the nicest AU53 1854-O Three Dollar gold piece I can recall having handled and it compares very favorably to many in AU55 holders.

CAC has approved 11 in this grade with 14 finer.
