Description

1863 AU 58. Extremely rare; only 1,218 business strikes were produced and as one might imagine, survivors are rarely seen in any grade, with the usual grades being VF-XF. AU pieces are extremely rare and only 1 mint state example is known (an NGC MS 63). We believe this coin may well be the second finest known. The fields are bright and prooflike, and we can find no fault with the striking details anywhere on this piece. The surfaces show the usual abrasions one would expect from a lightly circulated gold coin with prooflike fields; the most obvious marks that one could use for tracing the coin's pedigree is a nick in the field out from star 5, a scrape on the lower jawline of Liberty, and a milling mark on the upper left portion of the neck of Liberty. This is a very rare opportunity to acquire a coin that has been missing in high grade from most advanced gold collections assembled this century. (NGC ID# 264B, PCGS# 8637)
