Description & Analysis

The 1854-O is common in all grades up to and including AU 58. In Mint State, however, it is scarce and extremely underrated. There are approximately two dozen pieces known in mint condition with nearly all of these in the MS 60 to 61 grade range. The 1854-O quarter eagle becomes truly scarce in MS 62 and it is actually quite rare in MS 63.
