||1854 G$1 Type Two MS62+ NGC. CAC. While the large mintage makes the 1854 Type Two gold dollar readily available in most grades, the demand by type collectors keeps the prices much higher than would be the case otherwise. The lustrous surfaces of this high-end MS62 display coppery-gold patination laced with hints of light green. The design elements are sharply defined throughout, and mentionable contact marks are lacking. Moreover, this particular coin is unusual in that the clashmarks that usually affect this issue are fewer and much lighter than typically encountered. Each side yields very pleasing eye appeal, both for the date and the grade designation. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
