This date is decidedly scarcer than the 1851 and 1852, especially in the higher AU grades. Properly graded AU55’s are not easy to locate and mostseen have been scrubbed or are excessively abraded.

This example has the luster and body of an AU58. It has very little actual wear, excellent detail and nice, natural medium yellow-gold color. There is a small dig seen below the mouth of Liberty and a few handling marks in the lower right obverse field.

The last two PCGS/CAC AU55 1853 double eagles which were sold at auction were Heritage 4/14: 6751 which realized $4,115 and Heritage 3/14: 10694, which brought $4,113.

This would make a nice Type One type coin or it would fit into a date set.

CAC has approved 25 in this grade with 37 finer.
