Description & Analysis

As one might expect from an issue with an original mintage figure of just 1,760 pieces, the 1854-D is very rare in any grade. It is tied for the third rarest issue in the series in terms of overall rarity and it is the sixth rarest of twenty issues in high grades. There are an estimated 75-85 pieces known with around a dozen in AU and five to six in Uncirculated.
