Description & Analysis


Jeff Garrett: With a tiny mintage of only 2,935 coins, the 1854-D issue must be considered rare in any condition. It is a major rarity in higher states of preservation. When seen, this date is usually well worn, and harshly cleaned coins are not unusual. Only a few examples are known to survive in choice or better condition. The finest seen has been an NGC MS 64 that sold at auction in April, 2013 for $64,625. The obverse of most 1854-D gold dollars is adequately struck, but the reverse is always weak about the wreath and the central portions. Also, there are always diagnostic raised die lines on the reverse to the left of the mintmark.
