Very tough coin to find. Only a few have made it into a PCGS holder. 5 Stripes, knob 9. B-6b, BB-96, R.3, Die state 5. This piece seems to have characteristics of both die states 4 and 5. The die cracks of state 5 are present on both sides, yet the reverse has not been relapped. Both of the headless arrow shafts are visible, rather than being invisibe from die lapping as one would expect. This coin has considerable luster for the grade. Wear is consistant with XF-45. Pale amber and iridescent toning throughout. CAC sticker.

The 1851 and 1852 dollars are very difficult to come by. During those years the price of silver reached $1.03 an ounce, exceeding the face value. As a result, very few made it into circulation.

1854 6942 1854 $1 XF45 17 76 1776
Somewhat scarce as most 1854 dollars out of the Philadelphia Mint were either melted or sent to China, This was a result of silver prices exceeding the face value.
