I have this 1854 Kellogg Double Eagle gold coin that my father found on the ground many years ago. I found it in my safe and with the price of gold today, am curious how much numismatic value it has above the obvious gold content. I read about the history of the coin which is very interesting. It does have a few nicks and would like to get a rough idea of its grade. Thanks for any help.

    did they make bronze ones like this and are they worth anything?

    Looking into the value but one thing I know for certain is that coin has been cleaned at some point which will affect its grading. I can tell by the field of the coin around the stars. There is this sort of "haze" you could call it.

    As a followup, I took this coin to my local coin dealer. After inspecting it, he told me
    it was worth about $4,000. This was before the recent run up in gold prices.
    It has sentimental value, so not looking to sell but curious about its value.
