VP-001. Repunched Date.

1854 Small Date double eagles are seen with normal dates and repunched dates. The latter are seen on about 10% of all known examples and are quite rare in AU53 or higher with natural color and surfaces.

The deeply toned example has a crusty “Euro” appearance with dark orange-gold surfaces contrasted by deeper hues on the relief details. Some marks can be seen in the lower left obverse and near the eyelid of Liberty; the reverse is cleaner and choice.

A similar quality NGC AU53 1854/1854 double eagle brought $3,687 as Great Collections 3/21014: 178290.

This scarce and interesting variety is not often seen in grades higher than this.
