Description & Analysis

As an issue, the 1854-S is a paradox. In lower grades it is highly touted as the only S-mint Type One gold dollar, and its scarcity is often overstated. However, at the Gem level it is virtually ignored by specialists, undoubtedly because its extreme rarity at this level prevents it from being promoted.
