Estimated grade. Sold by David Akers Numismatics Oct '97 Price realized $154
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.
