Description

1859-S XF 40 PCGS. This is a date that Akers compares to the 1858 in overall rarity. In his auction survey done some years ago, he ranked the '59-S near the top of the series in rarity (according to frequency of appearance at auction) and also in rarity according to average grade. The finest examples we know of are 3 AU coins certified by PCGS. This is a condition rarity even in XF with Breen calling coins in this grade "prohibitively rare." The surfaces are peppered with some normally seen small abrasions, but none too heavy. Some light coppery patina has gathered under the devices. (NGC ID# 2643, PCGS# 8630)
