Description

Elusive 1860-S Ten Dollar AU55

1860-S $10 AU55 NGC. In the early years of San Francisco Mint gold production, far more attention was given to the minting of double eagles. After similar quantities of S-mint eagles and double eagles were struck in 1854, only token mintages were recorded for most ten dollar issues well into the 1870s. Among the lowest of these is the 1860-S, an issue with an original production of just 5,000 pieces. The few pieces that survived the rough and tumble commerce of the Pacific West tend to be well circulated and heavily abraded. This absolute as well as condition rarity not only escaped heavy circulation, but also came away with no overtly distracting marks. The strike is a trifle soft, as always, and tinges of reddish-orange patina cling to the devices. Census: 2 in 55, 4 finer (11/06).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2646, PCGS# 8632)
