Estimated grade. Purchased by Louis Eliasberg when he acquired the John Clapp collection in 1942. Ealier from the George Crawford collection, auctioned by Charles Steigerwalt in 1894. Purchased at the Bowers & Ruddy Oct '82 Eliasberg sale by Fred Weinberg for $11,000. Lot #6.
David Akers (1975/88): Generally lumped together with the 1851, 1852, 1853, and 1854 as a "common date" Type I gold dollar, but both experience and our auction tally clearly indicate that it is decidedly more scarce that the later Philadelphia Mint dates of this type.
