Description & Analysis

From an original mintage of 160,675 pieces comes this underappreciated Half Eagle rarity. More difficult to locate than the 1843, 1847, 1851, 1852, 1853, and 1860 among No Motto Liberty Fives from the Philadelphia Mint, the 1854 is usually encountered in VF or XF grades. The limited number of Mint State examples extant seem to be clustered around the MS62 level.
